Vienna, Austria – July 19, 2013 – Today Lexogen released an upgraded version of the SENSE strand-specific mRNA-Seq library prep kit that now includes Magnosphere™ MS150/Oligo-dT beads from JSR Life Sciences. These beads have performed with the highest sensitivity and specificity among all tested. The poly(A) selection step has become even faster and more efficient, reducing the number of PCR cycles needed for library amplification. Moreover, extra PCR reagents are provided for an additional qPCR to determine the optimal number of PCR cycles.
