Menarini Silicon Biosystems DEPArray PLUS Application

Menarini Silicon Biosystems has launched its FFPE Rescue Application to enable molecular testing on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples with low tumor cell contents. Enabled by the sorting capabilities of the company's DEPArray PLUS instrument, the application can be used to isolate a sufficient number of tumor cells to generate relevant molecular data, even from FFPE tissues that were previously discarded from conventional next-generation sequencing processing, the company said. As such, the workflow can reduce the failure rates of FFPE molecular analyses and provide clinical researchers with valuable information about actionable mutations, potentially improving clinical trial recruitment and allowing more patients to access new targeted therapies, the company added.
