The Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Mouse Gene Expression Assay allows simultaneous gene expression measurement of over 20,000 mouse RefSeq genes in a single assay. Providing the ability to work directly with low input levels of total RNA, the Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Mouse Gene Expression Assay is ideal for those interested in obtaining comprehensive and highly sensitive gene expression measurements from a wide range of RNA sources. This particular kit enables manual library preparation with throughput flexibility. For automated production, see the Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Mouse Gene Expression Panel, Chef-Ready Kit.

The Ion AmpliSeq Transcriptome Mouse Gene Expression Assay offers:
• Flexible, straightforward library preparation—start with as little as 10 ng of total RNA from tissues, cells, or other sources
• Fast gene expression profiling with simple workflow—go from RNA to data in <2 days with ~45 minutes of total hands-on time with the automated workflow of the Ion GeneStudio S5 and Ion Chef systems
• A complementary software plug-in for automated sequencing analysis that provides gene quantitation and reporting as well as quality control metrics
• Compatibility with Ion Xpress Barcode adapters, allowing for multiplexed sequencing

Leveraging the speed and simplicity of Ion AmpliSeq technology, this ultrahigh-multiplex PCR enrichment approach enables rapid gene expression profiling with minimal hands-on time. This research method provides a faster, simpler, and lower-cost sequencing method that is highly correlated to whole-transcriptome RNA sequencing.

Straightforward library preparation and multiplex sequencing with manual kit
Starting with as little as 10 ng of total RNA, libraries can be prepared in approximately seven hours with only one hour of hands-on time. Total RNA is first processed with the SuperScript VILO cDNA Synthesis Kit (not included), and the resulting cDNA is amplified using Ion AmpliSeq technology to accurately maintain expression levels of all genes.

The resulting libraries are ready for downstream template preparation using the Ion OneTouch 2 or Ion Chef System and sequencing on the Ion GeneStudio S5 or Ion Proton System. Libraries can be barcoded for multiplexing, providing flexibility, reduced cost, and increased throughput, with the recommended 16 libraries per Ion 550 Chip and 8 libraries per Ion 540 or Ion PI chip. Other multiplexing options are also possible, depending on the experimental design and desired level of sensitivity.
