Beckman Coulter Genomics RNA-seq Services

Beckman Coulter Genomics has added stranded, ribodepletion, and globin reduction library construction options to its existing RNA-seq services. The Illumina TruSeq Stranded Total RNA sample prep kit has been automated on Beckman Coulter instruments to enable scalability and LIMS sample tracking. Beckman Coulter has validated the new offering for human, mouse, rat, and plant samples. The new offering also works with samples derived from blood and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue, Beckman said.
