Twist Sample Preparation Protocol: Covaris FFPE DNA Extraction

An optimal NGS workflow starts with an optimal Sample Preparation step, followed by the Library Prep. Sample preparation is a critical step, and often challenging because of the quality of the samples. This is the case with FFPE tissue samples, where the starting material could be degraded. Adaptive Focused Acoustics® (AFA) technology, developed by Covaris for improving the Sample prep step, drastically improves the yield and the quality of extracted nucleic acids. Covaris is the gold standard technology for NGS fragmentation thanks to its unparalleled results.
