Archived formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples offer a great opportunity for researchers to access samples with well-annotated clinical information for translational studies. However, until recently it has been a challenge to obtain high-quality genetic and genomic data from these samples due to the poor quality and quantity of the nucleic acid that can be obtained.

FFPE Solutions unlock the potential of these precious FFPE samples by providing highly accurate and quantitative results for:
