Can less than 10 ng RNA be used with the QuantiTect Whole Transcriptome Kit?
FAQ ID -1590

Yes, less than 10 ng of RNA can be used with the QuantiTect Whole Transcriptome Kit if the RNA is of high quality and the abundance of the transcript of interest is high. Please see Appendix A in the QuantiTect Whole Transcriptome Handbook for details on the limitations for RNA amplification.

(Note that 1 ng of RNA corresponds to approximately 50 cells).
