Covaris truXTRAC FFPE RNA Kit

Covaris has introduced the truXTRAC FFPE RNA Kit, which extracts high-quality RNA from FFPE tissue samples that is suitable for next-generation sequencing. The extraction method utilizes highly controlled, focused acoustic energy to remove paraffin from FFPE samples without the use of organic solvents, enabling efficient and rapid tissue rehydration, tissue digestion, crosslink reversal, and nucleic acid release, the firm said in a statement.
