Upcoming Webinar – Sequence what matters – one-step rRNA removal in 10 seconds


QIAseq FastSelect: A new revolutionary technology for rRNA depletion

For transcriptomic profiling of gene expression using RNA-seq, removal of highly abundant, but unimportant RNA species increases sensitivity and decreases cost- per-sample. Current removal methods are arduous, not well suited for fragmented samples and may result in sample loss or distortion of transcriptomic profiles.

This webinar discusses a novel rRNA depletion technology that only requires 10 seconds of hands-on time – and is compatible with fresh, FFPE and highly fragmented RNA, as well as a wide variety of RNA-seq library preparation kits and methods. It can also be customized to fit your specific application by species and target.
