Small Sample Services

The core facility offers solutions for small sample preparation for gene expression analysis.

Challenging samples, such as, biopsies, sorted cells (FACS), laser capture microdissection (LCM) and Formalin- Fixed Paraffin- Embedded tissues (FFPE) are suitable for these assays.

Affymetrix and Nugen provide kits for target preparation from as little as 100 pg total RNA (approximately 10 cells).
