We use Next Generation Sequencing technologies that allow the analysis of total RNA (WTS), but also the specific analysis of coding RNA (RNA-seq) or microRNA (miRNA-seq).
Extraction from the different matrices (eg blood, plasma, paraffin, fresh tissue and saliva) with kits optimized for the NGS analysis required.
We use the main tools for checking the quality and quantity of the extracted DNA, such as NanoDrop, LabChip and Qubit.
The library preparation protocol and the type of sequencing strictly depend on the purpose of the investigation.
