Varroa destructor riboPOOL

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

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


The Varroa destructor riboPOOL covers the following sequences:

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


Varroa destructor is a parasitic mite that primarily infests honeybees, specifically the Western honeybee (Apis mellifera). This mite poses a significant threat to honeybee populations worldwide, leading to colony collapse and substantial economic losses in beekeeping industries.
