CancerSeq™ Paraffin Tissue Tumor Block: Lung
BioChain’s CancerSeq formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissues are tumor tissues that have been prescreened extensively for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), insertions & deletions (indels), and copy number variations (CNVs). Targeted Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), using cancer gene panels, was performed to identify mutations and mutational hotspots. BioChain’s CancerSeq tissues are ideal for verification, genotyping, or identification of new mutational hotspots.
To generate our CancerSeq line of tissues, genomic DNA was extracted from the FFPE tissues and validated by targeted NGS with Illumina’s TruSeq Amplicon – Cancer Panel (TSACP), which includes 48 cancer-related genes. Our prescreened tissues come with detailed information regarding donor and cancer type, as well as NGS information such as chromosomal position, variant type (SNP or indel), alternate allele variations, quality score, depth of coverage, allele type, transcript ID and more. We offer the prescreened tissue as mounted sections or whole block. Please inquire for other options, such as curls or extracted nucleic acids.
