Becton Dickinson Rhapsody Whole-Transcriptome Analysis Amplification Kit

Becton Dickinson has released a new solution for combined whole-transcriptome and protein analysis in single cells.

The BD Rhapsody Whole Transcriptome Analysis Amplification Kit enables unbiased 3'-based capture, amplification, and detection and is designed to work with BD's Rhapsody single-cell analysis system and AbSeq reagents. It is also optimized to work with BD's Single-Cell Multiplexing kit to improve efficiency.

The research-use-only kit is validated for use with a wide range of cell inputs.
