Tissue Container and Kits

The PAXgene Tissue System allows histology, immunohistochemistry, and stabilized RNA, miRNA, and DNA extractions from one sample without compromising workflow. The recognized standard for preserving tissue morphology is FFPE, which does not preserve biomolecules. As a result, the DNA, RNA, and miRNA molecules degrade, preventing the complete analysis required. PAXgene is made of a dual-chambered container prefilled with two reagents: PAXgene Tissue Fix for fast penetration and fixation and PAXgene Tissue Stabilizer for storage and transport.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
