DNA Extraction (FFPE)

DNAstorm™ FFPE DNA Extraction Kit

Powerful DNA extraction from FFPE samples
Formalin-fixed tissue samples are a challenge for DNA extraction, often resulting in low quality and yields of amplifiable DNA and poor performance in subsequent steps like sequencing library preparation.
The DNAstorm Extraction Kit enhances the removal of formaldehyde-induced damage and provides DNA with higher yield and quality, better integrity, and greater amplifiability. DNAstorm's proprietary CAT5™ technology* allows for isolation of nucleic acid under mild conditions, avoiding the use of damaging conditions and chemicals. The kit provides all necessary reagents for extraction of total DNA from FFPE tissue samples in a simple spin-column format.
Whether you are performing Next generation sequencing, PCR or qPCR/RT-PCR, the DNAstorm kit improves DNA extraction success.
*CAT5™ technology builds on research initiated at Stanford University and published in Nature Chemistry in 2015 (S. Karmakar et al, Organocatalytic Reversal of Formaldehyde Adducts of RNA and DNA Bases, Nature Chemistry 2015, 7:752-758.)
