Application Note: HaloPlex Target Enrichment from FFPE Tissues
20 May 2013
FFPE tissues compose an enormous archive of samples obtained from biopsies of various human cancers in institutions around the world. However, as DNA purified from FFPE tissue can be highly degraded, damaged, and available only in small quantities, being molecular analysis of these samples can be challenging. The study described in this application note investigates the general compatibility of FFPE samples with HaloPlex Target Enrichment System and presents a QC assay for FFPE samples that can predict the performance of a HaloPlex enrichment assay.
