Extraction of DNA and RNA from FFPE samples can be challenging, time consuming, and labor-intensive. Traditional methods of extraction require toxic chemicals, often resulting in degraded and fragmented nucleic acids.
Covaris truXTRAC® FFPE SMART Solutions offer a scalable, automation-friendly workflow solution for active deparaffinization, extraction, and purification of high-quality DNA and RNA from FFPE samples. Utilizing the power of focused ultrasonication with Adaptive Focused Acoustics® (AFA®) Technology, this workflow provides both high quality and yield of DNA and RNA from the same FFPE sample while ensuring reliable, reproducible data along with flexibility in throughput and batch size. With no toxic organic solvents or harmful chemicals, this workflow easily integrates with most liquid handling systems.
The truXTRAC FFPE SMART Solutions portfolio includes a collection of consumables, buffers, and reagents for varying batch sizes (16, 24, 32, 48, and 96 samples at a time) as well as accessory kits for fully manual or fully automated workflows. Individual accessories are also available a la carte so you may customize your selections for your own unique workflow.
