Caenorhabditis elegans riboPOOL

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

The Caenorhabditis elegans riboPOOL is optimized for high-quality and intact (RIN > 7) RNA samples. For depletion of rRNA in FFPE/degraded sample, see Caenorhabditis elegans FFPE/Degraded RNA riboPOOL.
