  • making miRNA libraries

    Hi
    Does anyone have tried the Bioo Scientific AIR™ Small RNA Sequencing Kit? It is quite a bit cheaper than the Illumina V1.5 kit and looks very similar.

    We've been using the Bioo AIR small RNA Seq kit and have been very happy with it. Significantly less adapter dimers in our sequence runs with this kit compared to v1.5, not to mentioned that the Bioo kit is actually in stock !!

      Thanks
      Do you start from total RNA or do you purify the miRNA using an acrylamide gel first?

        Eric, I second that. I've had good results using the kit, much better priced. For our purposes, we extract from cells and start with a very low quantity of RNA (100 ng) so we use total RNA. The guys across from us work on human miRNAs and they isolate their smalls before using this kit.

          We isolate our miRNA before preparing libraries. You can use any small RNA isolation reagent on the market. Trying to do it with an acrylamide gel is probably too difficult.

            Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
            by seqadmin


            Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

            Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
            by seqadmin


            Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
