The Ionic FFPE to Pure RNA Kit enables purification and concentration of RNA, including messenger RNA and microRNA. The assay uses Purigen's isotachophoresis technology and takes one hour with minimal hands-on time on the Ionic Purification System.

The kit consists of six chips and a reagent set to perform extraction from as many as 48 FFPE scrolls or slides.
