Isolate and enrich for the true whole transcriptome with Ribominus kits

Go from total RNA to transcriptome-enriched sample using the RiboMinus rRNA depletion kits. These ribosomal RNA depletion kits use biotin-labeled oligonucleotide probes to hybridize specifically to ribosomal RNA and streptavidin-coated magnetic beads to capture and remove the unwanted rRNA.
