Higher Quality Nucleic Acid Extraction from FFPE Tissue and Other Challenging Samples Using the Ionic™ Purification System
Wednesday, 27 May 2020 | 11:00 - 12:00 EST, 16:00 - 17:00 BST
Presented by Klint Rose, Chief Scientific Officer, Purigen Biosystems
FFPE tissue and samples with a low abundance of high-quality nucleic acid represent a bottleneck in sample preparation workflows. Researchers and clinicians working with these samples are often required to use labor-intensive methods to isolate enough material for downstream analyses. Such methods often include steps with the potential to introduce bias or produce material with lower quantity and quality. In this workshop, data from use of the Purigen Ionic™ Purification System to purify nucleic acid from challenging sample types including FFPE tissue and low quantities of cells. The results from quality assessments and downstream NGS will be discussed.
Dr. Klint Rose co-founded Purigen Biosystems in 2012. Dr. Rose was previously an R&D Manager at QuantaLife, Inc. (acquired by Bio-Rad), where he played a key leadership role in the development, launch, and support of their droplet digital PCRTM product. He previously directed a portfolio of several successful projects at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) with applications in sample preparation, desalination, and nanomanufacturing. Dr. Rose is an expert in microfluidics and electrokinetics, with over 15 years of experience in the space. Klint received his B.S. and M.S. in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and his Ph.D. from Stanford University.
