Sample Information

NOTE: FFPE slides should be sectioned fresh (<1-2 months) onto SuperFrost Plus slides, and slides should NOT be pre-baked. Do not use pencil for slide labeling, and do not overcrowd slides with more than 2 tissues. Samples that are not prepared and/or stored according to recommended guidelines may not perform as well for RNAscope/BaseScope assays.

Different types of tissue specimens may need different pretreatment conditions for optimal assay results. Guidelines are provided in our product manuals for various tissue types; however, assay conditions for other specimens may need further optimization.
Under- or over-fixed tissue specimens (e.g. FFPE fixed in 10% NBF for less than 12 hours at RT) do not perform as well for RNAscope.
Under- or over-fixed tissue specimens (e.g. FFPE fixed in 10% NBF for less than 12 hours at RT) do not perform as well for RNAscope.
Provide approximate time of when samples were embedded (if blocks) or sectioned (if slides). FFPE slides sectioned >1-2 months ago may have RNA degradation.
Recommended storage conditions for FFPE samples are 4C with desiccant for short-term storage and -20C with desiccant for longer-term storage.
Any special instructions, including specific sectioning depths, regions of interest for analysis, slide numbering requirements, project deadlines, etc
