The Maxwell 16 LEV RNA FFPE Kit is available for RNA isolation from mammalian FFPE (formalin fixed paraffin embedded) tissue samples. The kit is designed to be used with the Maxwell 16 instrument to extract pure, high-yield RNA from thin sections of FFPE tissue samples. The purified RNA is suitable for downstream applications including RT-PCR, RT-qPCR, endpoint RT-PCR, cDNA library synthesis, and gene expression analysis. By purifying RNA from 5 µm sections of FFPE samples, the kit can eliminate the need to concentrate the extract prior to amplification. The automated, walkaway system is able to extract from 16 samples in a single run.
