The SENSE mRNA-Seq Kit is an all-in one strand-specific mRNA-Seq library preparation protocol. SENSE uses total RNA input and is available for Illumina platforms (V2 reagents). Barcode Sets are included for Illumina (i7 indices, 7001-7096). For Illumina there is the additional possibility to use four external i5 indices (Dual Indexing Add-on Kit, Cat. No. 047) that allows unique indexing and multiplexing of up to 384 samples.

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.
