Quantabio Announces RNA Next-Generation Sequencing Library Preparation Tool

Quantabio, a leading provider of robust DNA and RNA amplification reagents for the most demanding molecular testing and life science research applications, announced the commercial availability of the sparQ RNA-Seq HMR Kit, an ultra-fast RNA next-generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation tool with integrated ribosomal RNA (rRNA) and globin mRNA depletion. The new kit enables scientists to generate high-quality stranded transcriptome libraries from challenging FFPE or low-input human, mouse and rat (HMR) samples in five hours with minimal hands-on time.

RNA-seq technologies enable scientists to gain critical insights into the molecular and cellular basis of disease. Specifically, the ability to sequence the coding and non-coding regions of RNA provides oncology researchers with a complete view of the cancer transcriptome and a better understanding of tumor classification and progression. RNA-seq is particularly useful for identifying the oncogenic drivers, fusion genes and gene expression changes in tumors.
