Alithea Genomics: BRB-seq Kit

Alithea Genomics has launched the Mercurius BRB-seq kit for high-throughput and cost-efficient RNA-seq library preparation from different types of RNA samples. The kit relies on early sample barcoding followed by pooling, so hundreds of RNA samples can be processed in the same tube after the initial reverse transcription reaction. It is compatible with purified RNA, cell lysates, and blood RNA samples.
