Re: [Histonet] DNA/RNA Extraction Kits for paraffinised tissues

Dear Shirley,
there is a short technical report called 'Direct quantification of gene 
expression in homogenates of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues' by 
a group from Genospectra, Inc, Fremont, CA, USA (guess the reagents are 
their own) in BioTechniques April 2006 Vol 40 No4 pg481   I think you can 
get it on line from   It may be a starting point to 
answer some of your questions.

[Histonet] DNA/RNA Extraction Kits for paraffinised tissues

Dear All

Have anyone heard of any DNA/RNA extraction kits for formalin-fixed, 
paraffinised tissues? I will greatly appreciate if you can share some of 
your feedbacks. Were your yields good?

Thanks in advance!
