Efficient DNA extraction for HPV genotyping in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues.


DNA from archived FFPE can be used for papillomavirus genotyping, but potential problems include paraffin as a physical barrier, DNA cross-linking, and PCR inhibitors. To address these complications, we combined a commercially available DNA isolation kit (Qiagen DNeasy) with a heat treatment and evaluated the resulting DNA with regards to HPV typing. DNA… (More)
