The Onco-Ref™ FFPE Cell Block Reference Standards provides a reliable source of clinically relevant specimens for assay development, optimization, and QC. The preparation of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) cell blocks is a common method for biological specimen preservation. While this process allows for the long-term storage of biological samples, it may lower the yields of DNA extraction, and may cause chemical changes in nucleic acid structure, both of which can adversely affect downstream characterization. Our FFPE blocks reference standards allows you to optimize your sample processing protocols for FFPE specimens, without the need to use precious clinical specimens.
