LCM Kits & Reagents

Laser capture microdissection (LCM) is an extraordinarily gentle method ideal for isolating single cells or small numbers of cells for your research. We offer research-use reagents and kits for the complete LCM workflow—from identifying and selecting cells to isolating and purifying RNA and DNA. 

Tissue Staining

We offer a variety of cell- and tissue-staining kits designed to identify target cells for laser capture microdissection (LCM) using the Arcturus® LCM microgenomics system. These tissue preparation kits aid in the identification and sourcing of biomolecules for downstream analysis.

DNA/RNA Extraction & Purification

Arcturus® DNA extraction and RNA isolation kits provide streamlined methods for obtaining high-quality nucleic acids from very small amounts of tissue or cells, whether you are extracting from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues or from very few cells (as few as 10 cells).

RNA Amplification

Arcturus® RNA Amplification Kits enable gene expression analysis of millions of previously inaccessible formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples and frozen samples. Amplify RNA from as little as 1 ng of total RNA or 5 ng of fixed RNA.

FFPE Reagent Systems

Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples introduce unique challenges for gene expression profiling and quantitation. Arcturus® Paradise® PLUS Reagent Systems and Kits provide an efficient, reliable solution for purifying RNA from FFPE tissue samples, followed by robust reverse transcription.
