Ribo-Zero™ and Globin-Zero™ Kit Selection Guide

The Ribo-Zero™ rRNA Removal Kits and the Globin-Zero™ rRNA/globin mRNA Removal Kit set the standard for ribosomal RNA (rRNA) and globin mRNA removal for RNA-Seq sample prep.

Ribo-Zero treated and Globin-Zero treated RNA can be used to make whole transcriptome RNA-Seq libraries using Epicentre's ScriptSeq™ v2 RNA-Seq Library Preparation kit.

The Ribo-Zero and Globin-Zero Kits:

  • Utilize intact, degraded and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) RNA samples.
  • Enrich for mRNA and non-rRNA non-coding RNA for whole transcriptome RNA-Seq.
  • Utilize an automation-friendly magnetic bead process.
  • Can be used with RNA from a wide variety of species.
