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.

RNA Labeling Kits

Arcturus® Turbo Labeling™ Kits offer a proprietary nonenzymatic technology optimized for the labeling of unmodified, amplified RNA (aRNA) for gene expression profiling. The unmodified aRNA is labeled post-amplification, thereby avoiding the need to incorporate modified nucleotides during RNA amplification. The use of unmodified nucleotides in the amplification process results in unmodified aRNA with higher yields and longer aRNA fragments, thus providing better representation of the mRNA transcript for downstream analysis.
