On-Demand Webinar

Uncovering tumor heterogeneity in FFPE samples by laser capture microdissection and next-generation sequencing
In this on-demand webinar, participants will learn about tumor heterogeneity and why potentially harmful alleles, undetectable in whole-tissue scrapes, can be uncovered in such tumors. The presentation will also show how the use of laser capture microdissection (LCM) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) facilitates detection of these alleles within three days from small amounts of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sample material. Note: this is an on-demand recording from our webinar originally delivered as part of the Genetic Analysis for All series in 2015.
