New Products: NuGen's InDA-C RNA-seq Method

Premium

NuGen has launched a method for RNA-seq — insert dependent adapator cleavage (InDA-C) — that uses primers during library creation to target specific transcripts for depletion. According to the company, the method is ideal for working with challenging samples, including model organisms. The method is used in NuGen's Ovation Human Blood and FFPE RNA-seq Systems to remove human reticulocyte globin and ribosomal RNA, but the company is now offering to assist researchers as a no-cost design service in choosing InDA-C primers.
