The product previously known as the TruSeq RNA Access Library Prep Kit (Cat. No. RS-301-2001 and RS-301-2002) is now called TruSeq RNA Exome. The product configuration has changed. In the new configuration, major components such as library preparation, index adapters, enrichment reagents, and exome panels can be purchased separately. If you were previously buying Cat. No. RS-301-2001 or Cat. No. RS-301-2002, purchase the following components: TruSeq RNA Library Prep for Enrichment (Cat. No. 20020189), TruSeq RNA Enrichment (Cat. No. 20020490), Exome Panel (Cat. No. 20020183), and one item from the Index Adapters section below.

Product Highlights

TruSeq RNA Exome, previously known as the TruSeq RNA Access Library Prep Kit, converts total RNA into template molecules of known strand origin, followed by sequence-specific capture of coding RNA. This provides a low-cost solution for analyzing human RNA isolated from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues and other low-quality samples.

  • Affordability and focus—Isolating human transcriptome coding regions maximizes discovery power at a fraction of the sequencing depth
  • High-quality data from difficult samples—Optimized for sequencing RNA from degraded samples, including FFPE tissues
  • Samples with limited starting material—Greatly reduced sample input requirements (as little as 10 ng total RNA from fresh or frozen samples or 20 ng total RNA from degraded samples) while maintaining high sensitivity

TruSeq RNA Exome generates RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) libraries from degraded samples that focus on the RNA coding regions. Isolating these high-value content regions to help maximize discovery power, while requiring only a fraction of the read depth of total RNA sequencing. The results are low input requirements, high sample throughput, and cost-effective transcriptome analysis. Reagent volumes supplied are sufficient to support 1- to 4-plex enrichment reactions.
