The Molecular Diagnostics section offers the following services.
We perform nucleic acid isolation procedures on archival formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) specimens, including micro-dissection of aniline blue stained sections, scrolls, and punches. Isolation can also be done on fresh or frozen tissue, blood, blood products, and body fluids.
The Agena MassArray is a mass spectrometry-based high-throughput SNP genotyping and somatic mutation detection platform.
The NanoString platform is a PCR-free method to analyze mRNA, miRNA and CNV of up to 800 targets.
The QX200 AutoDG Droplet Digital PCR System provides absolute quantification of target DNA or RNA molecules for EvaGreen and probe-based Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR™) applications.
