NuGen Technologies Ovation SoLo RNA-Seq System

NuGen Technologies has launched the Ovation SoLo RNA-Seq system for whole-transcriptome analysis directly from cells or using isolated RNA. The system features an improved method for depleting ribosomal RNA by more than 90 percent; efficient cDNA generation from ultra-low inputs; and the ability to unambiguously identify PCR duplicates, the company said. The kit is expected to facilitate research in areas such as blood-borne biomarkers, cellular heterogeneity, and single-cell transcriptomics.
