Pan-Mussel riboPOOL

The Pan-Mussel riboPOOL is designed to efficiently deplete ribosomal RNA (rRNA) from mussel RNA samples. The product is compatible with most downstream applications, including different next generation sequencing workflows (both short and long-read sequencing).

The Pan-Mussel riboPOOL is optimized for high-quality and intact (RIN > 7) RNA samples.


The Pan-Mussel riboPOOL covers the following sequences:

Sequence Type Covered
28S rRNA Cytosolic Yes
18S  rRNA Cytosolic Yes
5.8S rRNA Cytosolic Yes
5S rRNA Cytosolic Yes
16S rRNA Mitochondrial Yes
12S rRNA Mitochondrial Yes


Mussels, bivalve molluscs found in both marine and freshwater habitats, are recognized by their elongated, oval-shaped shells. They have gained attention in molecular biology studies as potential bioindicators due to their sensitivity to environmental changes. Research studies explore their genetics, focusing on adaptation mechanisms, which provide valuable insights into their survival strategies and evolutionary processes.
