The ARCTURUS® Paradise® PLUS Reagent System permits unprecedented gene expression analysis of millions of previously inaccessible samples. It is an integrated solution for gene expression studies from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues, including reagents for tissue staining, RNA isolation and RNA amplification. Amplify RNA from as little as 5 ng of fixed RNA using methods that have been specially optimized to overcome the challenges of cross-linked templates.

This kit provides reagents for 2-round in-vitro transcription with aminoallyl aRNA labeling.

Key product features:
• Accelerated discovery process – unlock the tissue archives to access previously inaccessible samples
• Simplified procedure – achieve unprecedented results in six steps
• Streamlined application – integrate seamlessly into current workflow
• Efficient workflow – secure downstream success with the Paradise® QC Kit
• Comprehensive system – benefit from the only complete system for formalin-fixed samples

Unlock the Tissue Archives
Currently, tens of millions of tissue samples with known outcomes are available in tissue archives. The Paradise® PLUS Reagent System enables microarray and qRT-PCR analysis of these previously inaccessible samples, allowing retrospective studies to accelerate discoveries.

Achieve Unprecedented Results in Six Steps
Only six steps are required to take you from sample to results (See Figure 1).

Integrate Seamlessly into Current Workflow
The Paradise® PLUS Reagent System is compatible with all major microarray platforms. Robust and reproducible results are achieved using tools and techniques commonly employed in today’s research laboratories (See Figures 2, 3, 4, and 5).

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 pre-qualified samples (See Figure 6).

Benefit from the Only Complete System for Formalin-fixed Samples
The Paradise® PLUS Reagent System is the only available solution that provides all the components necessary to prepare RNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples for gene expression analysis. To ensure successful microarray results, the system includes reagents optimized for exceptional recovery of RNA and superior RNA amplification.

Integrated Systems for Microgenomics
The Paradise® PLUS Reagent System is a validated as part of the Arcturus® Complete System for Microgenomics®, an integrated solution for utilizing small quantities of RNA for gene expression analysis. This system features the ArcturusXT™ Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) Instrument to procure pure cell populations. Arcturus Systems for Microgenomics enable accurate and sensitive microarray assays that reveal molecular signatures otherwise obscured in whole tissue samples or cell mixtures.
