Measure gene and transcript abundance; detect known and novel features in coding and noncoding RNA. Targeted hybridization removes abundant rRNA to focus on high-value portions of the transcriptome.
Quantify gene expression, identify known and novel isoforms in the coding transcriptome, detect gene fusions, and measure allele-specific expression.
Analyze gene expression in a focused set of genes of interest. Provides quantitative expression information as well as the detection of small variants and gene fusions.
Use ultra-deep sequencing of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplicons for analysis of RNA sequences of interest, differential expression analysis, allele-specific expression measurement, and gene fusion verification.

All three kits allow you to decrease sequencing costs by loading up to 384 samples on a single NovaSeq S4 Flow Cell using 384 unique dual indexes for higher throughput sequencing.
Bead-linked transposome tagmentation is an innovative technology used in our library preparation portfolio. On-bead tagmentation lets you get to sequence-ready libraries faster than before by simultaneously fragmenting the gDNA and adding the Illumina sequencing primers. Normalize your library without ancillary reagents or equipment. Reduce turnaround time and complexity.Learn More
The other key technology used in our NGS library prep is adapter ligation, long known for consistent, high-quality data. Libraries are prepared by fragmenting a gDNA or cDNA sample and ligating specialized adapters to both fragment ends. These adapters contain the full complement of sequencing primer hybridization sites. This eliminates the need for additional PCR steps, making the process fully automatable.Learn More

A critical comparison between two popular RNA Library Prep Kits reveals new information of interest to researchers conducting RNA sequencing studies.
A comprehensive set of NGS methods for analyzing:
This article collection describes various NGS methods for RNA sequencing, compiled from the scientific literature including pros and cons, publication summaries, and references.
Simultaneously fragment the cDNA and add the Illumina sequencing primers.
Scalable transcriptome and exome sequencing. Process up to 40 samples in a single sequencing run.
Perform secondary analysis on the whole flow cell in less than 2 hours.
Increase the number of samples sequenced per run and optimize high-throughput sequencing using unique dual index adapters.
Unique molecular identifiers (UMIs) provide error correction and accuracy and can reduce false-positive variant calls while increasing variant detection sensitivity.
Our partners have developed both high- and low-throughput walk-away automation methods that span our library prep portfolio.
Detect both known and novel features in a single assay, including transcript isoforms, gene fusions, and single nucleotide variants, all without prior knowledge.
