Menarini Silicon Biosystems DepArray SamplePrep Kit

Menarini Silicon Biosystems is launching the DepArray FFPE SamplePrep Kit at the Association of Molecular Pathology annual meeting. The new kit is designed for disaggregation and staining of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections down to a single-cell suspension. It enables the detection, identification, and recovery of different cell populations by the DepArray system based on specific immunofluorescent staining and DNA content, which guarantees the recovery of 100 percent pure tumor cell populations, the company said. Obtaining pure cell populations enhances downstream analysis, including next-generation sequencing and the identification of molecular targets for personalized therapies.
