Discover and quantify novel transcripts and splicing variants
INVIEW Transcriptome Discover is a complete RNA-Seq service that provides unique molecular insights into the transcriptome of nearly any organism.
The service can be used to profile all RNA species, including non-coding RNAs. Through the use of strand-specific libraries (Fig.1), the product can also help evaluate both sense and antisense transcripts. The 150 bp paired-end reads can be conveniently used for organisms with longer genes, such as plants. This product is applicable to any sample, as a well-defined reference sequence is not necessary.
- Elucidate cellular function through transcript quantification
- Analyse specific genomic elements and their biological significance
- Characterise differences in RNA splicing like alternative splicing
- Identify antisense transcripts
- Determine transcribed strand of non-coding RNAs
- Mark boundaries of closely situated or overlapping genes

INVIEW Transcriptome Discover is an inclusive RNA-seq service that uses next-generation sequencing to provide the most comprehensive information on expression, levels, sequence, structure and strand orientation of RNA types. Strand-specific libraries can be sequenced with long and accurate read lengths to quantitatively evaluate common and rare transcripts, as well as to detect novel transcripts or alternative splicing events.
What is your transcriptome project aiming for? Are you seeking for unbiased information for basic or medical research? Or are you analysing metabolic pathways in order to improve production processes?
Our INVIEW Transcriptome packages provide standardised solutions that are suitable for a great variety of sequencing projects. Furthermore, raw data is processed within bioinformatics analysis and summarised in a comprehensive Data Analysis Report providing the results in a clear, understandable and informative way.
For projects without a reference genome, de novo transcriptome sequencing based on PacBio technology can be added to your project using our NGSelect product.

Please note that only S1-classified material is accepted for RNA isolation ordered online. More information about the current classification of biological material can be found here (TRBA 466). Please contact us for further information on isolating RNA from material classified as S2.
- RNA isolation – efficient isolation of RNA for uniform and less-biased coverage
- Ribosomal RNA (rRNA) depletion – optimised removal of rRNA from mRNA for commonly studied organisms
Please contact us to check the compatibility of your organism
- Standard eukaryotic library - mRNA is poly-(A) enriched and fragmented. cDNA synthesis is performed using random hexamer priming.
- Standard prokaryotic library - rRNA is removed by ribo depletion. cDNA synthesis is performed with random hexamer primers.
- 3’ fragment library – RNA is first fragmented, then the poly-(A)+ mRNA is enriched. In this library, each transcript is only represented by a short 3’ fragment, providing very deep and efficient expression analysis.
- Library with FFPE RNA - RNA isolation from Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) samples with optimised ribodepletion for reliable gene expression analysis and SNP detection.
