Smart-Seq2 Single Cell Kit is a highly sensitive cDNA preparation kit that obtains high-quality full-length cDNA from 1-1,000 cells or 10 pg-10 ng total RNA for single cells or trace samples RNA-seq analysis. Smart-Seq2 Single Cell Kit uses Oligo dT30VN primer as the reverse transcription primer to synthesize cDNA, and relies on the template-switching activity of Reverse Transcriptase to add adapter sequence to the 3'-end reverse transcribed full length cDNA. Through subsequent PCR amplification, to obtain full-length cDNA, effectively avoiding the 3' bias and rRNA contamination. The obtained full-length cDNA product can be used for transcriptome sequencing and gene expression analysis.

Smart-Seq2 Single Cell Kit is suitable for the detection of trace samples such as single cells, so that samples with low abundance and low concentration can also be analyzed by RNA-seq sequencing. In general, one reaction can produce 2-20 ng of cDNA amplification products.

Box 1: Store at -80°C.

Box 2: Store at -20°C.

*Note: The Control Total RNA is from Hela cell.


Low starting amount of template:Prepare high-quality full-length cDNA with 1-1,000 cells or 10 pg-10 ng of total RNA template.

High sensitivity of amplification: Combined with Smart-Seq2 and LNA technology, more genes can be detected.

Easy to operate: Single-tube protocol from cell lysis to cDNA, reducing operation steps and operation time.

High success rate of operation: Fewer RNA sample processing steps to avoid the risk of sample loss and increase the success rate of the operation.
