Horizon FFPE Reference standards are cell-line derived making them reproducible, renewable, and affordable experimental controls for molecular diagnostic assays. They are formulated to mimic patient samples and serve as excellent quality controls by acting as performance indicators for the whole diagnostic workflow.
Horizon FFPE standards eliminate the variability associated with patient-derived reference standards, and avoid the hassle of sourcing, characterizing, and documenting your own cell line mixes. Using a proprietary method of mild fixation and homogenous paraffin embedding, we generate highly reproducible and consistent FFPE curls. Our standards yield high molecular weight DNA which can be analyzed in a wide-range of assays including qPCR, Sanger sequencing and next-generation sequencing.
