Lexogen Luthor 3' mRNA-seq Library Prep Kit

Lexogen has launched the Luthor 3' mRNA-seq library prep kit for ultra-low input and single-cell sequencing. At sequencing depth of 1 million reads, the kit allows detection of up to 15,000 genes from one cell and up to 13,000 genes from 10 picograms of purified RNA input. Using T7 high-resolution original RNA (THOR) amplification, the kit amplifies RNA directly, without a cDNA intermediate.
