The Centre is experienced in a wide variety of protocols allowing us to tailor our service to your research project. We provide excellent project support and deliver high quality data at competitive prices.

To ensure quality we:

  • perform extensive QC checks on your RNA samples 
  • minimise PCR cycles, thereby reducing the number of duplicate reads in your data
  • only use stranded kits to increase mapping accuracy

If required we can provide a rRNA removal service on:

  • Human/Mouse/Rat
  • Bacteria
  • Plant Leaf/Seed/Root
  • Yeast

Further information on rRNA kit species compatibility can be found on Illumina’s website.  

The RNA sequencing services that we offer are summarised in the table below. Please contact the Centre for further information or a quote.
