New kits for rRNA removal

Epicentre’s Ribo-Zero™ rRNA Removal Kits are gaining wide acceptance as the new standard for removing rRNA from intact and partially degraded RNA samples for RNA-Seq library preparation. Two new Ribo-Zero Kits are now available:

The Ribo-Zero rRNA Removal Kit (Gram-Positive Bacteria) removes >99% of 23S and 16S rRNA and >93% of 5S rRNA from total RNA isolated from Gram-positive bacteria.

The Ribo-Zero rRNA Removal Kit (Human/Mouse/Rat) Low Input is ideal for removing rRNA from limited quantities of total RNA and from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) RNA samples.
