PCR-cDNA Sequencing Kit

SQK-PCS109

$599.00

Identification and quantification of full-length transcripts with highest throughput

Includes a Flow Cell Priming Kit

Poly-A+ RNA 1 ng 165 mins PCR Throughput
  • Information

    This kit is highly recommended for users who:

    • have a limited amount of input material
    • want to optimise their sequencing experiment for throughput
    • would like to identify and quantify full-length transcripts
    • are interested in differential gene expression
    • want to characterise and quantify isoforms, splice variants and fusion transcripts

    The PCR-cDNA Sequencing Kit features:

    Feature Property
    Preparation time 165 minutes
    Input requirement 1 ng poly-A+ RNA (or 50 ng total RNA)
    Reverse transcription required Yes
    PCR required Yes
    Read length Enriched for full-length cDNA during PCR
    Read type produced 1D
    Expected data* •••
    Typical number of reads 7–12+ million full-length mapped readsper flow cell on MinION/GridION; 50+ million mapped reads per flow cell on PromethION
    Associated protocols cDNA-PCR Sequencing
    Multiplexing options

    PCR Barcoding Kit

    Flow Cell Wash Kit

    Pack size 6 reactions
    Stability Shipped at  -20° C
    Long-term storage  -20° C

     

    Description

    The PCR-cDNA Sequencing Kit is used to prepare cDNA for nanopore sequencing from an input of as low as 1 ng poly-A+ RNA. Users who do not have poly-A+ enriched RNA can use 50 ng of total RNA but additional optimisation may be required.

    Taking full-length poly-ARNA, complementary strand synthesis and strand switching are performed using kit-supplied oligonucleotides. dscDNA is then generated by PCR amplification using primers that contain 5’ tags which facilitate the ligase-free attachment of Rapid Sequencing Adapters.

    Further considerations

    The PCR Barcoding Kit (SQK-PBK004) can be used to multiplex up to 12 different RNA samples into a single flow cell.

    Oxford Nanopore Technologies deem the useful life of the product to be 3 months from receipt by the customer.

  • Protocols
  • Safety and legal
  • What's in the box

    The PCR-cDNA Sequencing Kit contains sufficient reagents to generate six sequencing libraries.

     

    The Flow Cell Priming Expansion Pack is also supplied.

    EXP-FLP002

  • Multiplexing

    Multiplexing with barcoding for up to 12 samples is available with an additional purchase: PCR Barcoding Kit (SQK-PBK004).

    Alternatively, use the PCR-cDNA Barcoding Kit (SQK-PCB109) instead of the PCR-cDNA Sequencing Kit
