MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit

Sequentially extract DNA and RNA into separate eluates from the SAME FFPE section

  • Same yields you would expect from isolating DNA from fresh frozen blood
  • Ideal for Oncomine Comprehensive and Oncomine Focus assays
  • Easy to automate using KingFisher instruments
  • Compatible with downstream applications like PCR and NGS, even when using FFPE tissue over 25 years old
  • Contains Dynabeads MyOne Silane for consistent isolation of RNA, microRNA, and DNA

Automation Friendly

Use the MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra kit with KingFisher instruments for a faster workflow suitable for downstream applications such as Oncomine Assays, PCR, and NGS.

sample workflow

Combine with AutoLys for a faster deparaffinization process

Speed up your deparaffinization process with the Applied Biosystems AutoLys system. Comprised of pretreated tubes and a rack system to reduce pipetting steps, the system eliminates the need for hazardous chemicals and minimizes loss of tissue sample.

The magnetic bead–based technology in the new Applied Biosystems MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit allows sequential isolation of DNA and RNA from the same formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sample (Figure 1 and 2). Recovering both DNA and RNA (including microRNA) from the same sample enables analysis and comparison of all the important biomarkers contained within your sample, such as hotspot mutations, copy number variations, gene fusions, and indels. The DNA and RNA are recovered in separate eluates—and both are compatible with a broad range of applications, including real-time PCR and next-generation sequencing (Figure 3 and 4).

DNA yields compared to column purification

Figure 1. DNA yields compared to column purification. DNA and RNA from consecutive 1 x 5 µm sections of four FFPE cancer tumor resection blocks were isolated with the MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit on the Thermo Scientific KingFisher Flex Purification System and with the Qiagen AllPrep kit. Samples were quantitated with Invitrogen Quant-iT DNAassay kit for DNA yield.

Comparable or better targeted DNA sequencing results

Figure 3. Comparable or better targeted DNA sequencing results. The MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra kit or a leading competitor’s kit was used to isolate both DNA and RNA from the same FFPE sections. DNA libraries were created using the Ion AmpliSeq Cancer Hotspot Panel v2, prepared using the Ion Chef System, and sequenced using the Ion PGM System. Data was analyzed using Torrent Suite Software.
