Introduction: Examination of bone marrow (BM) trephines has been traditionally limited to histological analysis. With renewed interest in their use in molecular diagnostics, studies assessing the impact of duration of storage on DNA amplification from archived BM trephines are required. Methods: DNA extraction was performed on 169 formalin-fixed decalcified paraffin-embedded (FFDPE) trephine blocks with a mean duration of storage of 59.4 months (range 4-200 months). An amplification control...[Show more]
