tissuePICK for FFPE tissue sampling, collection, and transfer
Safe, fast, and simple FFPE sampling process
Reduced overall costs
Less operator hands-on time and variability
The tissuePICK FFPE sampling system includes a specialized fiber with a small collection area and unique surface properties for easy sampling of the desired area of a slide-mounted FFPE section. Collected tissue is then directly transferred into a Covaris microTUBE by simply placing the fiber into the microTUBE (for nucleic acid release using truXTRAC). Compared to the traditional method of using a razor blade to scrape slides, tissuePICK significantly simplifies sample recovery, while reducing overall cost, operator hands-on time, and variability.

FFPE sectionPICK (quantity 25, PN 520149): sectionPICK is designed to collect FFPE tissue sections mounted on slides. Its shape is designed to collect the tissue scraped from the slide at the end of the tool. The sample is then easily transferred to a Covaris microTUBE. It is not designed for the collection of stained sections.
FFPE tissuePICK (quantity 25, PN 520163): The FFPE tissuePICK is designed to collect FFPE tissue from sections mounted on slides. The small cross section and unique surface properties of the FFPE tissuePICK allow for easy collection of small discrete areas as well as large tissue sections from single or multiple slides. It is not designed for the collection of stained sections. It requires tissuePICK Forceps (PN 520164) for handling.
