Lexogen introduces new RiboCop rRNA Depletion Kit for Plants

Vienna, Austria – Lexogen, a leading company in transcriptomics and Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) announces the release of RiboCop rRNA Depletion for Plants, a solution that efficiently removes unwanted ribosomal RNA (rRNA) from various plant samples, including roots, seeds, and leaves from different plant species. RiboCop for Plants integrates seamlessly into end-to-end RNA-Seq workflows, enabling researchers to understand plant transcriptomes comprehensively. It is a perfect product for researchers in agricultural biotechnology and plant and crop scientists worldwide.

Unveiling the Hidden: Efficient rRNA Removal for Deeper Transcriptome Analysis

rRNA accounts for up to 97 % of total plant RNA. This abundance of rRNA masks crucial messenger RNAs (mRNAs) and other non-coding RNA species of interest. Lexogen’s RiboCop rRNA Depletion Kit for Plants ensures robust depletion of plant rRNA, ensuring a clear view of the remaining transcriptome.

RiboCop: A Versatile Solution for Diverse Research Needs

Lexogen’s RiboCop technology is compatible with various library prep protocols, including Lexogen’s CORALL RNA-Seq V2. With RiboCop for Plants, Lexogen expands RiboCop’s species coverage, providing a great asset for plant transcriptomics research:

  • Comprehensive Transcriptome Analysis:
    Enables exploration of non-coding and non-polyadenylated RNA alongside mRNA for a complete transcriptome picture.
  • Preserves RNA Integrity:
    The enzyme-free protocol protects full-length transcripts, making it suitable even for degraded samples.
  • Maximized Sequencing Data:
    Achieves less than 3 % remaining rRNA reads, maximizing the use of sequencing resources.
  • Scalable and Automation-Friendly:
    Works effectively with a wide range of input amounts (1 ng – 1 µg) and integrates seamlessly into automated workflows due to the used of magnetic beads and automation compatible volumes.

“RiboCop rRNA Depletion Kit for Plants enables researchers to access the full potential of their plant transcriptome analysis. It also fits seamlessly with our well-established ribo-depletion solutions for Bacteria. Simultaneous depletion of plant and microbe rRNA is important for decoding intricate interactions crucial for plant and crop health.”, says Dr. Yvonne Goepel, Product Manager at Lexogen.
