Digital Course: Overcoming Challenges of Working with FFPE Samples


Order Now 

About this Product: 

The course provides important insights for overcoming challenges of working with FFPE samples for cancer research such as detecting RNA and profiling miRNA expression. Next generation sequencing (NGS) utilizes FFPE samples for clinical retrospective studies. Successful interpretation of the samples depends on the quality of the starting material.
