Roche KAPA RNA HyperPrep

Roche has launched KAPA RNA HyperPrep, a robust RNA library preparation solution for a range of sample types and input amounts. These kits provide a single-tube workflow and decrease processing time by 30 percent while maintaining quality, Roche said. The kits utilize a novel chemistry that enables the combination of enzymatic steps and fewer reaction purifications, resulting in a truly streamlined solution for the preparation of high-quality RNA-seq libraries, Roche added. These strand-specific workflows can be completed in a standard workday while generating high-quality libraries from challenging samples such as formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue.
