Toyobo RNA Analysis Kit

Toyobo of Japan is releasing RNA Analysis Kit for full-length sequencing of total RNA from a single cell. The kit is based on a method called RamDA-seq that was developed by researchers at the Laboratory for Bioinformatics Research at the Riken Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research in Japan. The method enables RNA amplification with low bias and the comprehensive identification of RNA varieties and their amounts in a single cell. The kit will officially be launched on Sept. 30.
