Zymo-Seq RiboFree Total RNA Library Kit
Comprehensive Gene Detection for Every Transcriptome & Beyond
The Zymo-Seq RiboFree Kit Detects an Exceptional Number of Genes. Total RNA extracted from various species were used as inputs for library preparation using a single standard RiboFree protocol. The libraries were paired-end sequenced. STAR-aligned reads were quantified at the gene level using featureCounts.
Maximize Your Sequencing Efficiency
>90% rRNA Depletion Across Organisms
The Zymo-Seq RiboFree Kit Produces Dense Coverage of Protein Coding and Other Transcripts. Classification of the STAR-aligned reads was based on Ensembl annotations and RepeatMasker rRNA tracks from UCSC genome browser when applicable.
Unparalleled Multi-Species Compatibility
RiboFree Universal Depletion Provides Cross-Species Compatibility. The Zymo-Seq RiboFree Total RNA Library Kit is unmatched in cross-species compatibility thanks to an innovative probe-free depletion strategy. Leveraging the robust depletion kinetics, scientists are exploring diverse applications of RiboFree using samples from vertebrates, plants and more.
Suitable for Degraded Samples*
The Zymo-Seq RiboFree Kit Effectively Depletes rRNA from Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) Human Tissue RNA. Libraries were prepared with 250 ng, 100 ng, and 50 ng of total RNA extracted from FFPE tissues (RIN = 1.6, peak < 200 nt), respectively, with minimal modifications to the standard protocol as described in Appendix E of the instruction manual.

The Fastest RNA-Seq Library Workflow
Sample to Sequencer in a Single Day
The Zymo-Seq RiboFree Kit has the Fastest Workflow from Total RNA to rRNA-depleted, NGS Libraries. The Zymo-Seq RiboFree Total RNA Library Kit offers a 20% - 40% reduction in workflow completion time compared to other available RNA library prep kits. Workflow time considers the hours required to complete both rRNA depletion and library preparation.
