RNA sequencing kits

Confidently characterise and quantify full-length RNA transcripts, splice variants, and fusions using long-read nanopore sequencing. Accurately analyse differential gene expression and transcript usage. Sequence native RNA directly, without amplification or reverse transcription, and identify base modifications.
