Next-Gen DNA Sequencer

LC Sciences provides a transcriptome profiling service using the Illumina high-throughput sequencing technology which enables comprehensive coverage, highly sensitive and specific discovery and profiling of all forms of RNAs in your sample.

This service is comprehensive – from sample to data, providing advanced technology and years of experience in efficient discovery and profiling of RNAs.

Our comprehensive profiling service includes:

  • Library preparation
  • High-throughput sequencing (RNA-Seq method, Illumina Next-Gen sequencing technology)
  • Bioinformatics analysis
  • Customer data report

Note – We cannot sort your sample(s) into individual cells.  Sorting must be performed before sample delivery to LC Sciences.

  • Illumina base-calling and analysis
  • Raw sequencing data – 50bp single-end reads – either FASTA-A or FASTA-Q files with base-calling quality scores
  • LC Sciences quality filtered data reduced to mappable reads, a list of unique sequences and their copy numbers
  • Genomic mapping of quality sequencing reads
  • Test for differential expression at gene level. (biological replicates required – see Technical Note – Biological Replicate Considerations – Differential Expression Analysis)
  • GO and KEGG annotation and enrichment analysis.
  • Customer data report – includes a summary of methods and all statistic analysis
