    Description

    The Direct cDNA Sequencing Kit is used to prepare cDNA for nanopore sequencing without using PCR. The kit recommends an input of 100 ng poly-A+RNA.

    Taking full-length poly-ARNA, complementary strand synthesis and strand switching are performed using kit-supplied oligonucleotides. The RNA template is then digested, and the second (complementary) strand is synthesised. Sequencing adapters supplied in the Direct cDNA Sequencing Kit are then ligated onto the dscDNA.

    Further considerations:

    A Native Barcoding Expansion pack (EXP-NBD104) 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.

     

  • Workflow

    Taking full-length messenger RNA, the complementary strand is synthesised using a kit-supplied oligo adapter. The RNA is then degraded, and the second (complementary) strand synthesised. Adapters supplied in the Direct cDNA Sequencing Kit are then ligated onto the cDNA, which introduce the components needed for the cDNA strands to enter the pore. One strand of the duplex is sequenced at a time, producing 1D reads.

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

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

     

    The Flow Cell Priming Expansion Pack is also supplied.

    EXP-FLP002

  • Multiplexing

    PCR-free multiplexing with barcoding for up to 12 samples is available with an additional purchase: Native Barcoding Expansion 1-12 (EXP-NBD104) and/or Native Barcoding Expansion 13-24 (EXP-NBD114).
