NuGen Technologies RNA-seq Kits

NuGen Technologies has launched two RNA sequencing kits: Universal Plus mRNA-seq and Trio RNA-seq. The Universal Plus mRNA-seq kit includes the option of eliminating unwanted transcripts after library construction using the company's proprietary AnyDeplete technology. This improves the ability to detect low expressed genes. The kit also enables input in the range of 1 microgram down to 10 nanograms. Trio RNA-seq is a whole-transcriptome kit that is suited for applications with low-abundance transcripts. It incorporates three technologies: single-primer isothermal amplification, DimerFree technology in the library prep step to minimize adapter dimers, and AnyDeplete.
