What is the PCR performance of DNA purified from PAXgene Tissue fixed, paraffin-embedded (PFPE) and PAXgene Tissue fixed, cryo-embedded (PFCE) tissue compared to DNA from snap frozen or formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue?

In contrast to FFPE, DNA purified from PFPE and PFCE is of high molecular weight, free of chemical modifications. In demanding downstream applications, such as multiplex or long-range PCR, it performs similarly or identically to DNA isolated from frozen tissue. For examples, see, Figure 5 in Viertler et al., J Mol Diagn. 2012 Sep; 14(5).
