Qiagen QIAseq FastSelect RNA Removal Products

Qiagen has launched the QIAseq FastSelect -rRNA and -Globin HMR Kits, which are designed to remove more than 97 percent of ribosomal RNA and globin messenger RNA from human, mouse, and rat samples to optimize RNA sequencing.

Qiagen also launched the QIAseq FastSelect 5S/16S/24S Kit to remove abundant bacterial 5S/16S/24S rRNA from RNAseq libraries prepared from complex microbial communities in soil, water, stool, and sludge samples.

The company noted that its QIAseq FastSelect kits remove unwanted RNA with a single 10-second pipetting step and 14 minutes of incubation.
