Oxford Nanopore PCR-cDNA and Direct cDNA Sequencing Kits

Oxford Nanopore Technologies has launched a PCR-cDNA Sequencing kit and a Direct cDNA Sequencing kit to prepare cDNA for nanopore sequencing. The PCR-cDNA kit requires a minimum input of 50 nanograms of RNA and the Direct cDNA kit requires at least 250 nanograms of RNA. Both kits can be used on any RNA with a polyA tail, and both are compatible with barcoding kits to multiplex samples.
