General description

The SeqPlex RNA Amplification Kit for whole transcriptome amplification (WTA) is designed to facilitate next-generation sequencing (NGS) from small quantities or from degraded/highly fragmented RNA (e.g. RNA from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples). The SeqPlex kit allows the user to pre-amplify these and other small quantity/highly fragmented RNA samples for input into a NGS workflow. It also facilitates the amplification of non-polyA tailed RNA isolated from tissue, cultured cells, formalin-fixed samples, or serum while maintaining patterns of differential expression found in the unamplified sample.


SeqPlex RNA Amplification Kit has been used to amplify poly(A)-selected RNA.

Features and Benefits

  • Low quantities of total RNA random priming technology amplifies fragmented or intact RNA from all sources including FFPE and RIP.
  • Semi-degenerate library primer design for more complete transcriptome coverage and efficient priming.
  • No need to fragment DNA before sequencing.
  • Amplifies ds-cDNA in 8 hours or less.
  • Compatible with all next generation sequencing platforms except Pacific Bioscience.
