This latest kit features a very efficient protocol which includes complete lysis and extraction of total RNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues without the use of toxic organic solvents.


The BiOstic® FFPE Tissue RNA Isolation Kit builds upon MO BIO’s expertise in extracting nucleic acids from challenging samples such as in the previous BiOstic® FFPE Tissue DNA Isolation Kit. This latest
kit has unique attributes, unmatched in other commercially available kits such as a Room Temperature Stable DNAse that ensures the best DNA removal, and a proprietary new low elution spin filter, that delivers highly concentrated RNA that is ready to use in RT-PCR, RT-qPCR, microarrays or next generation sequencing.

Features of the BiOstic® FFPE Tissue RNA Isolation Kit include:

  • No xylene or other toxic solvents for fast and safe paraffin removal
  • Higher yields and concentration - The new and unique low elution spin filter enables high recovery efficiency in only 20 µl
  • Successful amplification thanks to contaminant and cross-link free RNA samples 

The BiOstic® FFPE Tissue RNA Isolation Kit is available now.
