FineFix, RCL-2 and HOPE, three formalin-free fixatives, were compared to the common used formalin fixed tissue samples of lung cancer and were evaluated for their effects on quality, quantity and integrity of RNA and microRNA. Two commercially available RNA extraction Kits (RNeasy FFPE by Qiagen and RecoverAll™ Nucleic Acid Isolation by Ambion) were tested… CONTINUE READING
