CleanTag™ Ligation Kit for Small RNA Library Prep now available

Chemically-modifying oligonucleotide adapters is an effective means to prevent adapter dimer formation during small RNA library prep. Just as primer dimers form when very little template DNA is used for PCR, adapter dimers can form with low starting concentrations of RNA.

The CleanTag™ Ligation Kit for Small RNA Library Prep is a complete, Illumina® technology compatible kit, which makes use of such modified adapters in optimized buffer conditions.

Expired patents might mean lower prices for SuperScript® II RT Users

When the patents on the SuperScript® II Reverse Transcriptase enzyme expired, a number of companies introduced their own version of the popular RT kit for cDNA synthesis. In general, the pricing was aligned to be a bit less expensive then the well known kit. Does brand loyalty affect the researcher's choice for this kind of kit? What are the latest alternatives available?


GreenView Plus is a highly sensitive and safe fluorescent nucleic acid stain designed to replace the highly toxic ethidium bromide (EtBr) for detection of DNA. This single stain gives high sensitivity detection of double-stranded or single-stranded DNA and RNA. Gels can be post-stained or alternatively the stain can be added to agarose gels during gel casting.
