Lexogen partners with BlueBee to automate data analysis for CORALL RNA-Seq kit

VIENNA, AUSTRIA, AND RIJSWIJK, THE NETHERLANDS – Lexogen and BlueBee, global experts in transcriptome sequencing and bioinformatics, respectively, have announced the implementation of the CORALL Total RNA-Seq data analysis pipeline on the BlueBee platform. Released by Lexogen earlier this year, CORALL is a novel all-in-one RNA-Seq Library Prep Kit, which enables fast and cost-efficient generation of UMI-labelled stranded libraries for whole transcriptome analyses using Illumina® NGS platforms. CORALL provides complete coverage of transcripts from start to end and delivers excellent gene discovery rates. “The protocol is compatible with a wide range of samples, remarkably user-friendly, and early customer feedback has been very positive,” said Dalia Daujotyte, Chief Commercial Officer at Lexogen.

The CORALL data analysis pipeline on the cloud-based BlueBee platform provides CORALL users with an end-to-end solution. It enables kit users to perform read quality control, mapping, Unique Molecular Identifiers (UMI) deduplication, and transcript quantification. Lexogen strategically partnered with BlueBee to automate the CORALL data analysis pipeline, following previously successful collaborations on data analysis pipelines for QuantSeq and SLAMseq kits.

“Staying true to our mandate, to provide fast easy to use and robust transcriptomics and sequencing solutions globally, we are excited to once again partner with BlueBee to improve data analysis and user experience for our clients,” said Dalia Daujotyte.


CORALL kit users will benefit from BlueBee’s data analysis solution in several ways:

  1. Streamline workflow and instant access to analysis pipelines, thus simplified data analysis.
  2. Flexibility to choose the geographical region in which the data should be analyzed, and therefore remain in compliance with GDPR and other data regulations.
  3. On demand access to compute and storage for any scale, and at any time, hence no need for in house compute and storage resources.
  4. Convenient sharing of data with collaborators within a secure environment, and automatic access to the most recent version of the pipeline.


“The expansion of our valued partnership, to now serve multiple RNA-Seq applications, increases the global reach of Lexogen’s portfolio and improves user experience,” says Hans Cobben, CEO BlueBee. “It is our aim to serve as an extension of our partner-clients, on the solutions front, providing leading edge bio-IT technology and compliance for greater market access as our partner launches its end-to-end omics assay solutions,” added Cobben.
