Ixodes scapularis riboPOOL

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

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


The Ixodes scapularis 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 No
12S  rRNA Mitochondrial No


Ixodes scapularis, commonly known as deer tick, is a significant vector for various infectious diseases, including Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis. Its role as a disease transmitter has made I. scapularis a focus of research in understanding tick-borne illnesses, their epidemiology, transmission dynamics, and preventive measures.
