Video: What are the sources of variability in FFPE material?

Posted by Dale Yuzuki on Oct 27, 2015

In this video interview Dr. Greg Tsongalis addresses sources of pre-analytic variability when processing formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples in a pathology laboratory setting. By 'pre-analytic', he refers to the kinds of kits used for DNA extraction, and other factors that may have a significant impact on the quality of the results. He also discusses his work on clinical assay development for somatic mutation detection using NGS technology.
