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

From:"Julie Clark"

Qiagen has kits for FFPE tissue that I have used.  We have had good
results with them.  I would recommend an overnight digestion step rather
than the 2-3 hours they recommend.  I have also used kits from Arcturus
( with LCM samples with good results (see Brian Petroff's
success story for our work).

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
your feedbacks. Were your yields good?

Thanks in advance!
