Bio-Rad offers kit to optimize RNA-seq library prep for comprehensive transcriptome profiling

By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

June 9, 2022 -- Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched a kit to provide biopharmaceutical and research scientists with an easy-to-use solution for constructing libraries to support RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) workflows for comprehensive transcriptome profiling.

The SEQuoia Express Stranded RNA Library Prep Kit, which enables researchers to construct libraries that capture mRNA and long noncoding RNA (>200 bp) transcripts for differential gene expression analysis and transcript discovery, leverages a novel reverse transcriptase alongside a ligation-free adaptor addition chemistry to yield a reproducible, quantitative RNA-seq library in three hours, according to Bio-Rad.

"Current RNA library preparation approaches are time consuming, complex, and potentially error prone, with sample loss observed at each stage in processes with multiple steps," said Simon May, president of Bio-Rad's Life Science Group. "Bio-Rad offers scientists an enhanced solution, combining its rapid NGS library preparation with integrated data analysis to overcome these difficulties and enable the widespread adoption of RNA-based sequencing."
