Lexogen Corall Whole Transcriptome Library Kit

Lexogen has launched its Corall Total RNA-Seq Library Prep Kit. The firm said that researchers can use the kit for all whole-transcriptome analysis applications, including differential expression, isoform quantification, and single nucleotide polymorphism and mutation detection. Lexogen highlighted that Corall can use as little as 1 nanogram and up to 1 microgram of total RNA. The kit integrates unique molecular identifiers that facilitate the identification and removal of PCR duplicates, while ensuring high strand specificity. The kits include up to 96 i7 indices for sample multiplexing. Researchers can also add i5 indices for a total of 9,216 indexing combinations. The firm offers the kits in in 24 and 96 prep sizes, as a standalone library preparation kit, or in combination with with the RiboCop rRNA Depletion Kit.
