Re: [Histonet] DNA/RNA Extraction Kits for paraffinised tissues
My information may be somewhat out of date as it is several years
since I did DNA extration on formalin fixed /praffin embedded tissues,
but at that time I found that the commercial kits (specifically the
ones using spin columns) were not as good as the old fashioned method
of phenol chloroform.
The amount/quality of DNA available is directly related to the type
and length of fixation so harsh unbuffered fixation will degrade the
This is my 2 cents worth
