Biogazelle's microRNA Quantification Service
Biogazelle is now offering massively parallel sequencing to quantify microRNAs in compromised samples characterized by degraded RNA or low output amounts. The service offering comibnes optimal library preparation and purification, so that sequencing reads are actually spent on mature microRNAs, and not on undesirable contaminants such as ribosomal and other long RNA fragments, the company said. Further, raw data reads are processed and analyzed using Ant, Biogazelle's custom small RNA sequencing analysis pipeline that is part of Cobra, its RNA sequencing data-analysis platform.
Participants of the program will be able to send a representative sample that will be sequenced at very high coverage in order to determine the biomarker potential and optimal sequencing depth for future studies, Biogazelle said.
