QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits
For rapid rRNA removal for RNA-seq library preparation from plant samples
QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits use a novel method to remove highly abundant RNA that is of low scientific value from your RNA-seq libraries. Researchers using RNA-seq for whole transcriptome analysis can use QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits to remove cytoplasmic (5.8S, 18S and 25S), mitochondrial (5S, 18S and 26S) and chloroplast (4.5S, 5S, 16S and 23S) rRNA.
We recommend using QIAseq Stranded RNA Library Kits for robust strand-specific RNA-seq library preparation for both high-quality and highly fragmented RNA.

QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits are intended for molecular biology applications. These products are not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits demonstrated highly efficient removal of rRNA (figure QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits are broadly compatible with different plants) and robust performance (figure QIAseq FastSelect ‒rRNA Plant dramatically improves the number of genes detected).
QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits also provide reproducible gene expression results (figure QIAseq FastSelect ‒rRNA Plant reproducibility) and consistent read mapping with a variety of plants.
Removing highly expressed, but biologically unimportant RNA transcripts makes NGS more efficient and enables higher sample throughput with higher sensitivity. Furthermore, removal of unwanted RNA species from full length and fragmented RNA samples can be particularly challenging, and can result in suboptimal performance.
QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits are designed for quick, efficient removal of cytoplasmic, mitochondrial and chloroplast plant rRNA from total RNA during NGS RNA library preparation. QIAseq FastSelect seamlessly integrates with your existing RNA stranded library preparation workflow for RNA removal in a single, 14-minute inline step. Prior to RNA heat fragmentation (which is optional and dependent upon the library preparation kit and sample type), QIAseq FastSelect removal reagent is directly combined with total RNA and the library preparation-specific buffers. After fragmentation, the reaction temperature is stepwise cooled to room temperature and the remaining library preparation steps are completed. There is no need to perform any type of enrichment on the total RNA samples. QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits ensure consistently high performance with RNA amounts ranging from as little as 1 ng to 1 μg. QIAseq FastSelect can be used with RNA from fresh samples from many species of plants, and delivers reliable rRNA removal and high reproducibility in downstream applications.
Most RNA removal or depletion strategies associated with RNA-seq library construction are sample pre-treatment strategies involving hybrid-capture or enzymatic removal of unwanted RNA. Our unique QIAseq FastSelect procedure is compatible with QIAGEN, Illumina, KAPA and NEB stranded library preparation kits and provides complete rRNA removal in a single, 14-minute inline step (figure QIAseq FastSelect Kit workflow). This is dramatically faster than alternative RNA depletion kits, which require pre-treatment protocols involving more than 25 steps and 2 hours to complete.
Simply add QIAseq FastSelect reagent to the RNA sample, perform fragmentation (if required), stepwise cool the reaction from 75°C to 25°C for 14 minutes and then complete the remaining library preparation steps. QIAseq FastSelect works with or without RNA fragmentation, providing the flexibility to use fragmented RNA from plant samples or high-quality RNA as part of a standard RNA-seq library construction workflow.
QIAseq FastSelect delivers rapid, reliable RNA removal from full length or fragmented RNA samples from many species of plants. QIAseq FastSelect –rRNA Plant Kits are available in a variety of different formats and sizes to suit your specific applications.
