There are two main strategies to keep solid tissue stored for long periods time, Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded commonly used in pathology labs and LN2 freezing commonly use in reserach labs and biorepositories. Both techniques have limitations on downstream applications and are complex and costly storing systems respectively. With 300K´s Solution we open a new way to store solid tissue at room temperature keeping tissue properties for downstream applications such as nucleic acids and Immunohistochemistry studies.
DNA/RNA integrity in dried tissue samples
Tissue samples dried with 300K technology and stored for long periods at room temperature are suitable material for high quality DNA and RNA purification.
