FFPE Mutation Cell Blocks
ONCOREF™ FFPE Mutation Cell Block provides a reliable source of clinically relevant specimens for assay development, optimization, and QC. Formalin fixation is commonly used for the preservation of biological specimens. While this process allows for the long-term storage of biological samples, it can lower the yields of extracted DNA, and cause chemical changes in nucleic acid structure – both of which can adversely affect downstream characterization. Our FFPE reference standards allow you to optimize your sample processing protocols for formalin-fixed specimens without the need to use precious clinical samples. We typically can turn around a ONCOREF™ FFPE Mutation Cell Block in 7 working days from fully expanded cell lines.
