Product Highlights

Illumina Stranded mRNA Prep offers a streamlined RNA-Seq solution for clear and comprehensive analysis across the transcriptome. It offers extraordinary flexibility for input type and supports low input amounts, down to 25 ng total RNA. Illumina Stranded mRNA Prep enables precise measurement of strand orientation, uniform coverage, and high-confidence discovery of features such as novel isoforms, gene fusions, and allele-specific expression.

Exceptional Performance

Illumina Stranded mRNA Prep is optimized to provide exceptional polyA capture efficiency and coverage uniformity. It minimizes the required sequencing depth for accurate, unbiased detection of the coding transcriptome. Illumina Stranded mRNA Prep is based on TruSeq ligation technology, which has been cited in over 9,926 publications since 2011.

Flexibility for Many Study Designs

Illumina Stranded total RNA Prep supports a broad range of RNA inputs, from 25 ng to 1000 ng.*

Precise Measurement of Strand Orientation

This information enables detection of antisense transcription, enhances transcript annotation, and increases alignment efficiency.

Fast, Automation-friendly Workflow

Prepare libraries for sequencing in less than 7 hours. Illumina-qualified automation options are coming soon through our automation partners.

Sequencing Scalability

Multiplex up to 384 samples and sequence in a single run. (Index Sets A and B are available now; Sets C and D are coming soon.)

The Power of RNA-Seq

RNA-Seq is increasingly the platform of choice for thought leaders, providing a detailed snapshot of the transcriptome at a given point in time. It offers numerous advantages over quantitative PCR, including:

  • Hypothesis-free experimental design, requiring no previous knowledge of the transcriptome 
  • Higher discovery power to detect known and novel transcripts 
  • Higher throughput capability to quantify hundreds to thousands of regions in each assay 
  • Broader dynamic range, providing more accurate measurement of gene expression 
  • More data per assay, providing full sequence and variant information

*Not compatible with FFPE samples
