QIAGEN Launches Novel RNA-Seq Library Preparation Solutions for Next-Generation Sequencing
In addition to a highly competitive and differentiated line of RNA-seq solutions, several other QIAGEN solutions for accurate, efficient NGS will be showcased at ASHG 2018, the conference of the American Society of Human Genetics from October 16-20 in San Diego. In addition, more than 15 studies relying upon QIAseq solutions, the GeneReader NGS System and other QIAGEN Sample to Insight products will be presented in ASHG 2018 scientific sessions, demonstrating the unique positioning of QIAGEN in this rapidly growing market of next generation sequencing.
“The QIAseq FastSelect RNA Removal Kit allows rapid selective removal of RNA classes from any sample, even the most difficult FFPE samples, enabling researchers to attain high quality, reproducible RNA sequencing results while at the same time minimizing time requirements and cost. The QIAseq Fastselect RNA kit can accomplish in one simple workflow step what current RNA sequencing library preparation solutions achieve in over 30 steps. By using a range of proprietary, novel technologies, the QIAseq FastSelect RNA Removal kit therefore radically simplifies and speeds up RNA removal. Off-the-shelf options include rRNA or globin mRNA removal, while custom RNA removal solutions for selected transcripts can be designed by QIAGEN,” said Dr. Thomas Schweins, Senior Vice President of QIAGEN’s Life Sciences Business Area.
