Ribo-Zero rRNA Removal Kit (Human/Mouse/Rat)

Catalog IDs: MRZH116, MRZH11124

The Ribo-Zero rRNA Removal Kit (Human/Mouse/Rat) will be discontinued on November 2nd, 2018. The TruSeq Stranded Total RNA Library Prep Human/Mouse/Rat is the recommended replacement product. Illumina remains committed to providing customers with high-quality support and service.

Kit Features

The Ribo-Zero (Human/Mouse/Rat) kit is compatible with human and other animal species, including FFPE RNA samples. This kit removes eukaryotic cytoplasmic rRNA.

Performance Specifications

Compare rRNA content before and after a Ribo-Zero reaction to assess the depletion of rRNA in total RNA.

A Ribo-Zero reaction removes:

  • > 99% of large cytoplasmic rRNA and large mitochondrial and chloroplast rRNA, as applicable.
  • > 85% to 95% of small rRNA (eg, 5S).

The success of rRNA removal depends on factors such as species, sample quality, and sequence homology between the rRNA sample and removal solution, especially with 5S rRNA removal. Use the Epicentre RNAMatchMaker at epibio.com/rnamatchmaker to verify sample and kit sequence homology sequence homology.
