Swift Biosciences has launched its RNA Library Kits. With patented Adaptase technology, the kits allow direct conversion of first-strand complementary DNA, reverse transcribed from RNA, into libraries for Illumina sequencing.
The firm is offering two kits: the Swift RNA Library Kit, which supports a broad input range from as little as 10 nanograms of total RNA or 100 picograms of poly(A)-enriched messenger RNA or ribosomal RNA-depleted RNA, and the Swift Rapid RNA Library Kit, which is faster and lower-priced. Both kits are available in 24- or 96-reaction kits.
The products include an RNA fragmentation module, a reverse transcription module, library prep reagents, polymerase, and several indexing primer kit options for single, combinatorial, and unique dual indexing.
