High-quality stranded RNA-seq libraries from a single cell with the SMART-Seq Stranded Kit

This SMART-Seq Stranded Kit enables users to generate Illumina-compatible, sequencing-ready libraries with strand-of-origin information directly from 1–1,000 intact cells (or 10 pg–10 ng of total RNA). This kit uses a random-priming approach to capture the entire transcriptome and enable the use of low-quality/degraded RNA as input material. The kit also features a built-in step to remove ribosomal RNA using our proprietary ZapR technology.

If you have high-quality RNA or wish to use an oligo-dT priming approach, we recommend the use of our SMART-Seq v4 Ultra Low Input RNA Kit for Sequencing or the SMART-Seq HT Kit for higher-throughput experiments.
