Cellecta Driver-Map Human Genome-Wide Gene Expression Profiling Kit

Cellecta has launched its Driver-Map Human Genome-Wide Gene Expression Profiling kit. It is a multiplexed RT-PCR-based assay designed to easily provide a molecular "snapshot" of protein-coding genes from complex samples, starting from as little as 10 pg of total RNA. The assay includes a complete set of gene-specific and PCR-NGS primers, buggers, spike-in ERCC, positive control RNAs, and all other reagents required to profile 24 samples, the company said. The kit allows researchers to selectively amplify the 19,000 known annotated human transcripts, use experimentally validated GCA-rich primers for comprehensive view of the spectrum of gene regulation, and have exacting RNA quality control.
