• Optimized for low input RNA, especially from bodily fluids such as plasma or serum at 1ng of RNA
  • Simple and quick workflow: library could be prepared in less than 5 hours
  • No gel purification for selected types of samples
  • Protocol optimized for RNA isolated from different types of input, including liquid biopsies (blood, plasma, serum and urine)
  • Complements Norgen's Best-in-Class Total RNA (including microRNA) Purification Technology

Small RNA Library Prep Kit for Illumina

The Small RNA Library Prep Kit for Illumina consists of all the reagents and components required to generate small RNA libraries to be used for next-generation sequencing on an Illumina platform. All molecular reagents including adaptors, primers, enzyme mixes and buffers are provided. A purification module is also provided for rapid purification of nucleic acid products generated at various steps of the workflow. The purification module utilizes Norgen’s patent resin technology which enhances recovery of desired library intermediates or final products. The library prep workflow could be used for different forms of input including purified total RNA or enriched small RNA, as well as RNA from low content inputs such as plasma, serum and urine.
