Bio-Rad Laboratories SEQuoia

Bio-Rad Laboratories announced the launch of the SEQuoia Complete Stranded RNA Library Prep Kit for RNA-Seq library preparation. The kit uses SEQzyme, an enzyme that couples cDNA synthesis with adapter addition in a continuous synthesis reaction. It is compatible with a broad range of sample inputs and allows capture of the complete transcriptome, including short and long RNAs, in a single library prep. The kit generates cDNA libraries suitable for strand-specific next-generation sequencing on Illumina sequencers in less than four hours. It also includes access to the integrated SeqSense analysis solution to process and quality control sequencing data for all RNA biotypes in the library within a single analysis pipeline.
