Cancer can affect various organs and is caused by mutations of the DNA. A prerequisite, to explore and understand underlying gene-mutations involved in the development of a definite type of cancer, is the extraction of pure sample material, which is challenging. In this webinar, we will present how to extract 100% pure cancer tissue for DNA analysis with laser microdissection (LMD). Using tissue samples from human kidney cancer patients as an example, this webinar will provide an overview of the practical considerations when preparing a workflow to obtain highly pure material with the LMD microscope for further molecular analysis.
