July 2017, – SomaGenics, Inc. launched RealSeq®-AC, a novel kit for preparing small-RNA sequencing libraries that eliminates incorporation bias in Next-Generation-Sequencing (NSG). Previously commercially available small RNA sequencing kits’ incorporation biases leads to over/under estimating the abundance of some miRNAs, and can obscure lower-expressed small RNAs. RealSeq®-AC accurately quantifies biologically relevant small RNAs, is highly efficient, detecting more miRNAs in total RNA samples, and allows for the discovery of novel small RNAs. RealSeq®-AC is a gel-free technology with total RNA input as low as 10ng.
SomaGenics plans to expand the RealSeq® platform to include kits for single cell small RNA, for targeted RNA-seq, and for fragmented, cell-free DNA-seq.
