Cellecta DriverMap RNA-Seq Panels, Analysis Software

Cellecta has launched five DriverMap Predesigned RNA-Seq panels, including the Human Cell Marker Panel, Human Hallmark Signatures Panel, Human LINCSx Panel, Human Pan-Cancer Pathway Panel, and the Human Transcription Factor Signature Panel. Each panel measures expression levels of over 1,200 curated essential genes selected from publications, open access databases, and other resources. The panels use the same multiplex RT-PCR followed by next-generation sequencing approach as the firm's DriverMap Expression Profiling assay, which measures expression levels of all protein-coding human genes.

The kits include a complete set of gene-specific and PCR-NGS primers, buffers, spiked-in EERC and positive control RNAs, as well as all necessary reagents required to profile 96 samples and prepare them for digital expression profiling on a Illumina sequencing platform also come with genome alignment software that provides differential expression data in an excel spreadsheet format.
