Overview

Collection and analysis of DNA, RNA and proteins present in individual cells or larger tissue regions supports growing translational and clinical pathology research. With analysis of specific cells in the tissue microenvironment, the discovery of potential new treatments or prevention methods becomes possible. The complete AccuLiftTM Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) System helps you successfully get to downstream analysis and increase your speed to discoveries, no matter what tissue you are working with.

By using the AccuLift System, you can be confident that you have captured only the individual cells you want while preserving the biomolecule integrity that is key for getting results that matter when it comes to elucidating unique molecular signatures.
