Product News: Next Generation Sequencing: The Power of Two – Ribosomal RNA Removal and Directional Library Generation in One Package

12 Nov 2012

Cambio, the exclusive distributors of Epicentre products in the UK and Ireland, have added a new range of products to their portfolio. The ScriptSeq™ Complete kits seamlessly combine Epicentre’s powerful Ribo-Zero™ technology and rapid ScriptSeq™ v2 procedure for end-to-end preparation of RNA Sequence libraries in just one day.

The kits enable life scientists to quickly produce directional, paired-end RNA-Seq libraries, typically containing less than 3% rRNA reads, from as little as 100 ng total RNA. 48 ScriptSeq™ Index PCR Primers are available separately for preparing barcoded libraries. Until the 31 December 2012, researchers can get a free ScriptSeq™ Index PCR Primer set with the purchase of every 24 reaction ScriptSeq™ Complete kit. ScriptSeq™ Complete kits are currently available for human, mouse and rat samples, but Complete kits for bacteria and plants are expected in early 2013.

ScriptSeq™ Complete kits remove the need to purchase separate kits for the different steps of RNA-Seq library generation, thereby reducing the risk of possible sample loss, hold-ups and unexpected costs. The Complete kits have been designed for a rapid, simple workflow, and are less expensive than buying the components separately. Cambio is dedicated to providing UK laboratories with the most efficient and effective tools for life science applications. Fully supported by top quality, tailored customer service, users are supplied with a complete solution that allows them to see the entire RNA-seq process through from start to finish.
