The QuantSeq-Flex Targeted RNA-Seq Kit V2 is an all-in-one library preparation protocol designed to make Illumina compatible libraries from any RNA sample using custom primers. It is based on the QuantSeq FWD kit and contains one or both of the QuantSeq-Flex Modules.
With the QuantSeq-Flex First Strand Synthesis Module the reverse transcription primer can be substituted with target-specific primer. Using the QuantSeq-Flex Second Strand Synthesis Module V2 custom primer can also be used for the second strand synthesis. Please note that the second strand synthesis reaction requires annealing temperatures of >45 °C. In case you need lower temperatures, please contact email@example.com.
For multiplexing of up to 384 samples/lane, the Lexogen i5 6 nt Dual Indexing Add-on Kit (Cat. No. 047) can be used that allows the dual indexing with four additional i5 indices.
NOTE: As of February 2019 barcode plates have been renamed to Lexogen i7 6 nt Index Set (7001-7096). An evaluation tool to check the color balance of index subsets is available here.
The old version of QuantSeq-Flex (Cat. No. 033-035) is available on demand. If you wish to order it, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
