KAPA Stranded mRNA-Seq Kits

KAPA Stranded mRNA-Seq Kits

Even difficult messages should be understood

The KAPA Stranded mRNA-Seq Kits ­generate libraries with greater than 99 % strand specificity and superior sequence quality. Kits are optimized for the improved coverage of GC-rich and low-abundance transcripts, resulting in the identification 
of more genes. The KAPA Stranded mRNA-Seq Kits contain KAPA HiFi for high-­efficiency and low bias library ampli­fication.
