Unprecedented Gene Expression Analysis

The Arcturus Paradise PLUS FFPE RNA Isolation Kit enables unprecedented gene expression analysis of millions of previously inaccessible samples by unlocking RNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues. Amplify as little as 5 ng of the isolated fixed RNA using reagents and methods that have been specially optimized to overcome the challenges of cross-linked FFPE templates (Figure 1).

Secure Downstream Success With the Paradise QC Kit

Not all FFPE samples contain high-quality RNA. Identify the best samples for your studies using a simple real-time PCR research technique, and then proceed with confidence using these prequalified samples (Figure 2).

Integrated Systems for Microgenomics

The Paradise PLUS Reagent System is validated as part of the Arcturus System for Microgenomics, an integrated solution for utilizing small quantities of RNA for gene expression analysis, and features the ArcturusXT™ Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) Instrument to prepare pure cell populations.

The Arcturus Paradise PLUS FFPE RNA Isolation Kit is for research use only, and is not intended for animal or human therapeutic or diagnostic use.
