FFPE Tissue and the HTG EdgeSeq Oncology Biomarker Panel

The overwhelming majority of archival samples of cancer tissue are formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE).  Many FFPE samples, especially pre-treatment biopsy specimens, are too small to reliably extract sufficient RNA for gene expression analysis.  HTG Molecular recommends 12.5 mm2 of tissue from one 5 μm FFPE section with no RNA extraction necessary for gene expression data from their HTG EdgeSeq nuclease-protection assay.

HTG EdgeSeq Oncology Biomarker Panel covers 2,560 genes.  This pilot study examined different amounts of tissue input from 3 colorectal and 2 breast tumors down to 3.1 mm2, representing ¼ the recommended input.

During this webcast you will learn/our speaker(s) will address:

  • The HTG EdgeSeq Oncology Biomarker Panel provides a solid platform to obtain gene expression data from FFPE samples far too small for reliable RNA extraction. 
  • Reproducibility was robust, with technical replicates correlating >0.98, and small areas of the tumor correlating very well with each other, and reasonably well with NanoString and TaqMan data from extracted RNA.
  • The lower limit for tissue input for this assay was not reached in this experiment, but most FFPE biopsy samples of interest will not be smaller than 3.125 mm2
