Generate mRNA-focused sequencing libraries from total RNA, with enhanced multiplex capability and a simple workflow with master-mixed reagents.
Kits feature 24 unique indexes, delivering enhanced multiplex performance for processing large numbers of samples. The kits include adapters containing unique index sequences that are ligated to sample fragments at the beginning of the library construction process. This allows the samples to be pooled and then individually identified during downstream analysis.
Master-mixed reagents eliminate the majority of pipetting steps and reduce the amount of clean-up, as compared to previous methods, minimizing hands-on time. This results in economical, high-throughput RNA sequencing studies achieved with a user-friendly workflow.
Prepare libraries for Illumina sequencing in less than a day. Illumina Qualified Methods are available on a range of automation platforms through our partners.
