RNA Sequencing Introduction

RNA Sequencing, sometimes referred to as transcriptome sequencing, is used to reveal the presence, quantity and structure of RNA in a biological sample under specific conditions. Compared to hybridization-based RNA quantification methods such as microarray analysis, sequencing-based transcriptome detection can quantify gene expression with low background, high accuracy and high levels of reproducibility within a large dynamic range. In addition, transcriptome sequencing does not require an existing genome sequence and can detect splice variants and fusion genes that can not be detected by microarrays.

With over two decades of experience, we have supported most of the world’s leading research institutes and pharma companies as well as many thousands of other partners across the globe. Our experience, sequencing scale and proprietary technology enables quality RNA data, rapidly delivered, all at industry beating pricing. Contact us today for a no obligation quote.
