FFPE Reagent Systems

The Arcturus® Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) method is extraordinarily gentle and ideal for microdissection of single cells or small numbers of cells. Arcturus microdissection instruments combine IR and UV laser cutting for ultimate microdissection flexibility.

Arcturus® Paradise® PLUS Reagent System

The Arcturus® Paradise® PLUS Reagent System and the Arcturus® Paradise® PLUS Reagent System with Microarray Labeling enables unprecedented gene expression analysis of millions of previously inaccessible samples. The Paradise® PLUS Reagent System 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.

Arcturus® Paradise® PLUS Whole Transcript RT (WT-RT) Reagent System

The Applied Biosystems® Arcturus® Paradise® PLUS Whole Transcript RT (WT-RT) Reagent System provides an efficient and reliable solution for purifying RNA from archived formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples followed by reverse transcription of the whole transcript for use in real-time PCR.

Arcturus® Paradise® PLUS FFPE Sample Quality Assessment Kits

The Arcturus® Paradise® PLUS Sample Quality Assessment Kit offers a simple solution for evaluating the quality of RNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues before proceeding with laser microdissection and downstream molecular analysis. The reagents provided in the kit are optimized to enable efficient extraction, isolation, and reverse transcription of total RNA from FFPE tissue scrapes. The RNA quantity and quality is then measured using quantitative real-time PCR.
