Illumina Announces TruSeq Stranded mRNA and Total RNA Sequencing Sample Preparation Solutions
Illumina (NASDAQ: ILMN) today introduced TruSeq Stranded mRNA and Total
RNA Sample Preparation Kits for RNA sequencing. The new reagent kits
enable researchers to quickly and easily conduct gene expression studies
that provide a complete view of the transcriptome, even from low-quality
RNA samples, such as formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples.
The Total RNA Sample Preparation Kit efficiently removes ribosomal RNA
and other high abundance transcripts using Epicentre's proven Ribo-Zero™
ribosomal RNA reduction chemistry, with an improved workflow optimized
for high-throughput studies. The resulting combination of high-quality
ribosomal removal and sample preparation chemistries into a single,
streamlined solution provides an exciting new opportunity for
researchers to conduct highly-accurate gene expression studies.
