Pan-Sponge riboPOOL

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

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


The Pan-Sponge riboPOOL covers the following sequences:

Sequence Type Covered
28S rRNA Cytosolic Yes
18S  rRNA Cytosolic Yes
5.8S rRNA Cytosolic Yes
5S rRNA Cytosolic No
16S rRNA Mitochondrial Yes
12S rRNA Mitochondrial Yes


Sponges are crucial for maintaining the health of marine ecosystems through their filter-feeding activities. Molecular biology studies help understand the genetic responses of sponges to environmental changes and pollution, which can have broader ecological implications.
