GeneChip™ WT Pico Kit is the most flexible and sensitive target preparation method for accurate and precise analysis of the transcriptome on whole-transcriptome (WT) arrays from as few as 10 cells.
Uncover biology hidden in heterogeneous samples Traditional whole-transcriptome expression analysis depends on samples derived from a relatively large number of cells. However, the gene expression measurements from these large cell populations represent an average that can often mask key differences between subpopulations. To better understand the biological significance of these differences in gene expression, researchers are increasingly focusing on smaller, characterized subsets of cells. WT Pico Kit, designed specifically to process small amounts of input RNA from different sample types, expands the power of Applied Biosystems WT array technology to enable researchers to perform whole-transcriptome analysis from just a few cells.
Complete flexibility for small quantities of RNA • Reveal the biology in small subpopulations of cells using as little as 100 pg of total RNA (approximately 10 cells). • Benefit from total flexibility with a single kit for various key sample types, including cultured cells, fresh/fresh frozen or formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues, and whole blood, without the need for globin or ribosomal RNA removal. • Obtain the highest accuracy with an assay that ensures strand specificity is preserved. • Perform multiple layers of analysis by combining with transcriptome arrays to accurately measure gene- or transcript-level expression of coding and long non-coding RNA.
