Challenging Samples in Cancer Research: Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded Tissues
Michaela Bowden (CEMOP Associate Director, Dana Farber Cancer Institute) presents the utility of Biomek automation (library prep, etc.) and using biopsied/low RNA-input (FFPE) samples for clinically relevant results. Includes overview of the RNA-Seq workflow and Illumina's Script-Seq Complete, TruSeq Stranded mRNA kits.
A discussion of automating the preparation of RNA-seq libraries using the RNASeq kit with formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples.This presentation represents part of a collaboration between Beckman Coulter and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Streamline your workflow with Phospho Epitopes Exposure Kit (PefFix-EXPOSE). Minimal sample manipulation as well as a sensitive and highly-reproducible results. One standard procedure and includes all needed reagents to permeabilize and fix samples. Works with whole blood/FFPE samples.
Final in a three-part educational Small Labs webinar series and covers challenging samples and niche applications including an overview of FFPE-derived RNA samples, cell-free DNA whole genome sequencing, targeted amplicon sequencing and HLA typing applications.
