View the on-demand webinar “Uncovering tumor heterogeneity in FFPE samples by laser capture microdissection and next-generation sequencing,” part of our 2015 “Genetic Analysis for All” series. In this session, participants will learn about tumor heterogeneity and why potentially harmful alleles, undetectable in whole-tissue scrapes, can be uncovered in such tumors.
The presentation will also show how the use of laser capture microdissection (LCM) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) facilitates detection of these alleles within three days from small amounts of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sample material.
