Diagenode D-Plex Small RNA DNBSEQ Kit

Diagenode has launched the D-Plex Small RNA DNBSEQ Kit, a small RNA sequencing product specifically formatted for MGI's DNBSEQ sequencers. The kit is based on a tailing and template switching technology that delivers a ligation-free method for RNA library preparation from small RNA input amounts as low as 10 picograms. The technology also enables detection of diverse and novel transcripts, ensuring realistic representation of the small non-coding RNA transcriptome and avoiding biased miRNA enrichment as with ligation methods, the company said. Furthermore, the kit has been validated for liquid biopsy applications, Diagenode said. The kit is available in a 24-reaction format with two sets of DNBSEQ barcodes available.
