Question: Are fixed tissues compatible with the Single Cell CNV assay?
Answer: The Single Cell CNV workflow is not currently supported for fixed tissues, such as formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) or methanol-fixed tissues. We have reason to believe FFPE will not be compatible with the assay due to the severe cross-linking and damage (including single-stranded nicks) that the DNA undergoes using this fixation method. Methanol fixation gentler on nucleic acids and may be compatible with the assay.
