Take the Expressway to RNA Library Prep

RNA-Seq library preparation is a manually intensive, time-consuming process prone to bias from the multiple enzymes required. So, how can you trust your sequencing results? Bio-Rad is revolutionizing RNA-Seq library prep with the SEQuoia Express Stranded RNA Library Prep Kit – a three-hour, three-tube solution eliminating the need for multiple enzymes and reducing both the number of pipetting steps and protocol time. The key is an engineered, proprietary retrotransposon called SEQzyme. With this serial template jumping, or continuous synthesis, reaction you can obtain an unbiased, stranded RNA-Seq library constructed to accurately represent both messenger and non-coding RNA from your sample.

Neutralizing Antibody Assays for SARS-CoV-2 Variant Studies

With COVID-19 vaccines now widely available, case numbers in many areas are falling. But the question remains: How long does vaccine-induced immunity last? Measuring isotype-specific antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 and the effectiveness of neutralizing antibodies against variants can help us better understand the duration and breadth of the humoral response. These data are critical to aid public health researchers and inform development decisions for vaccines and therapeutics. Read about the new Bio-Plex Pro Human SARS-CoV-2 Variant Neutralization Antibody 11-Plex Panel.

Retain Rare Transcripts While Depleting Ribosomal RNA

Bio-Rad is excited to announce the launch of SEQuoia RiboDepletion Kit, the newest product in the SEQuoia portfolio of RNA-Seq sample preparation products. This is a stand-alone, post–library depletion kit that eliminates RNA-Seq library fragments that originated from ribosomal RNA sequences. The kit exhibits superior performance in retaining small RNAs while minimizing the loss of rare transcripts and RNA from limited samples, providing a better approach to whole transcriptome profiling. Furthermore, the cost of rRNA depletion can be significantly reduced by pooling and depleting multiple libraries in a single ribodepletion reaction.
