RealSeq Biosciences Selective Suppression Probe

RealSeq Biosciences has launched its Selective Suppression Probe (SSP), a targeted probe to deplete undesired or overabundant species from RNA samples. SSP provides increased reads and up to ten times the sequencing depth for small RNAs or micro RNAs of interest. It can be used with both single- and paired-end sequencing and on a variety of sequencing platforms. The product includes a standard probe set for human plasma samples as well as customizable probes for individual research needs.
