LC Sciences provides a fast, one-stop Total RNA sequencing solution – from your sample through data analysis.

Total RNA Sequencing captures a broader range of gene expression changes and enables the detection of novel transcripts in both coding and non-coding RNA species. Ribo-Zero ribosomal RNA reduction chemistry is used in place a poly-A tail selection which makes this method particularly suited for species whose mRNA may lack a poly-A tail, such as bacteria.

  1. The latest in next-gen sequencing technology
  2. Experienced staff to assist you with experimental design
  3. Fast turnaround times
  4. Full bioinformatics analysis
  5. Expert technical support to assist with data interpretation

Library Preparation

Next-Gen Sequencing

Advanced Data Analysis

Any Species

Profile mRNA in any species – there is no need for probes based on prior sequence or secondary structure information.


Profiling is transcriptome-wide – investigate all mRNAs, known and unknown, in your sample.

Digital Results

Achieve digital, quantitative transcript expression analysis – Accurate expression levels over 5 orders of magnitude.

Novel Transcripts

Detect novel and rare transcripts and transcript variants, such as single nucleotide mutations (SNP)

  1. Alignment, classification, & functional annotation of all mapped reads
  2. Biostatistical analysis – expression analysis, multi-parameter data analysis, length distribution, transcript copy number comparisons, etc
