Lexogen Quantitative RNA-Seq Service

Lexogen has launched its RNA-Seq service. It uses the company's QuantSeq technology to produce gene expression profiles. The library preparation procedure is automated and the workflow allows for a high degree of multiplexing, the company said. The service costs €248 per sample, which includes library preparation, lane mixing, sequencing, and all required quality controls for processing 48 samples concurrently. Customers are then sent a report that provides data analysis down to the differential gene expression. Further analyses are available upon request.
