Archival Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) samples hold an abundance of invaluable information for human cancer studies. Because these samples generally yield highly degraded DNA, they perform poorly in most whole-genome genotyping studies. The Infinium HD FFPE DNA Restore Kit can repair these degraded DNA samples in preparation for use with the array-based Infinium HD Assay.

After DNA extraction using one of many commercially available kits, the Illumina FFPE QC Kit is used to evaluate the quality of prospective DNA samples to determine if they are usable. The QC Kit provides primers and DNA template for a real-time PCR assay that can be carried out using standard instrumentation and reagents purchased from an authorized vender. Extracted FFPE samples that pass the QC test are then eligible for restoration using the Infinium HD FFPE Restore Kit.
