NEXTflex™ Rapid Directional RNA-Seq Kit

June 15, 2015 4:39 pm | Bioo Scientific | Products

The NEXTflex™ Rapid Directional RNA-Seq Kit provides an easy and flexible dUTP-based solution for generating single read, paired-end and multiplexed stranded libraries from mRNA or rRNA depleted total RNA. This kit can be used to obtain "stranded" information which identifies the specific DNA strands a given RNA transcript was derived from with >99% strand specificity. Automation protocols are available for the Sciclone Workstations to offer researchers a substantial increase in productivity with consistent quality.
