Sensitivity meets speed

Transcriptomics provides a snapshot of cellular activity at specific points in time and in response to environmental stimuli. It aims to characterize both protein-coding and non-coding transcripts (and the variation therein) and quantify their complex ebb and flow. This allows researchers to unravel biological mechanisms, detect and monitor cancer and other diseases, and validate biomarkers and drug responses.

There is a need for RNA library preparation solutions that are highly sensitive, scalable, robust with respect to performance with challenging clinically relevant sample types, such as FFPE and low inputs. Our portfolio delivers in all of these areas, enabling cutting edge research and applications in the transcriptomics space.

  • Watchmaker RNA Library Prep Kits with Polaris Depletion for improved sensitivity with FFPE and low-inputs using a rapid library prep workflow
  • Watchmaker RNA Library Prep Kits for the streamlined prep of total RNA libraries for target enrichment applications
