Currently, VASA-seq works on cells of human, mouse and rat origin.
The rRNA is physically removed from the cells before we proceed with the amplification of the RNA contents of the cells.
Our throughput time is 4-8 weeks, from the moment we receive your plates.
All fresh cell types/nuclei that can be FACS sorted (live/dead), are suitable. Methanol-fixed cells that are rehydrated before sorting are also compatible with VASA-seq.
Yes, both technologies use the same cell capture plates.
You can order the cell capture plates via the plate order form.
