Efficient and versatile for isolating DNA from FFPE samples

QEx™ FFPE DNA PCR Ready Lysis Buffers

The QEx™ FFPE PCR ready lysis buffers are efficient and versatile for isolating  DNA from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples. The unique chemistry of the QEx™ reagents preserves DNA in linear format and increases PCR and hybridization efficiency. The workflow is simple and fast with only 4 steps of adding and mixing the samples with buffer A and B sequentially. The whole procedure can be finished within 18 minutes with minimal manual operation. The lysate can be used directly in a wide range of downstream applications, i.e., PCR, real-time PCR and sequencing, etc.

Supporting data

Amplification profile (the first figure) and melting peaks (the second figure) from real-time (SYBR) PCR using EGFR Exon 2 as a target gene demonstrate reproducibility and specific target amplification. Three consecutive FFPE slides of three different patient samples (lung cancer -sample 1 and melanoma -sample 2 and sample 3) were processed with QEx FFPE PCR ready lysis kit on different dates.
