Lexogen: RiboCop - An efficient way of rRNA depletion

Depletion of highly abundant ribosomal RNA (rRNA) is a very important step for various complex RNA analysis applications. While efficiently eliminating rRNA species, it should not make the whole workflow much longer or significantly more expensive. Most of the previously available rRNA removal kits have required in one or another way sacrificing time, price or quality. RiboCop provides efficient rRNA depletion as simple and cost effective as it should be.

Efficient rRNA depletion
RiboCop probes efficiently remove cytoplasmic as well as mitochondrial rRNA and therefore afford a comprehensive view of transcriptome composition. RNA samples void of 28S, 18S, 5.8S, 45S, 5S, mt16S, mt12S ribosomal sequences are obtained.
Streamlined for diverse RNA analysis applications
RNA treated with RiboCop can be used for any downstream applications, e.g. RNA-Seq and microarrays. It is perfectly combined with SENSE Total RNA-Seq Library Prep Kit.
Simple protocol

RiboCop depletion is based on hybridization of affinity probes. The number and positioning of probes are designed for applicability towards intact as well as fragmented input RNA. No enzymatic reactions or mechanical shearing steps are involved, leaving full-length transcripts intact for downstream processing.
Fast workflow

The whole protocol has two major steps - hybridization and depletion. Overall it takes just 2 hour saving time for further RNA analysis.
The price of the RiboCop is just about USD 29 per prep. rRNA depletion is no longer an expensive part of RNA sample preparation.
