Product Highlights

TruSeq RNA Access kits convert total RNA into template molecules of known strand origin, followed by sequence-specific capture of coding RNA. This provides a low-cost solution for analyzing human RNA isolated from FFPE (formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded) tissues and other low-quality samples.

  • Affordability and focus - isolating human transcriptome coding regions maximizes discovery power at a fraction of the sequencing depth
  • High-quality data from difficult samples - optimized for sequencing RNA from degraded samples, including FFPE tissues
  • Samples with limited starting material - greatly reduced sample input requirements (as little as 10 ng total RNA from fresh or frozen samples or 20 ng total RNA from degraded samples) while maintaining high sensitivity

TruSeq RNA Access Kit generates RNA-Seq libraries from degraded samples that focus on the RNA coding regions. Isolating these high-value content regions maximizes discovery power, while requiring only a fraction of the read depth of total RNA sequencing. The results are low input requirements, high sample throughput, and cost-effective transcriptome analysis.
