  • Cappable-seq Service now available !

    In close cooperation with New England Biolabs, Inc. (NEB), VERTIS is now able to make the new Cappable-seq method available to its customers. The method was developed by Laurence Ettwiller and Ira Schildkraut from NEB (Ettwiller, L. et al. 2016. BMC Genomics. 17, 1 (2016), 199).

    It represents the current most sensitive and robust method for the precise identification of bacterial transcription start sites (TSSs).

Special Applications

VERTIS relies on an innovative in-house developed cDNA platform, which is subjected to a continuous process of further improvement and optimization. This way we can offer highest flexibility to our clients in the realization of their research projects.

Please find here some more detailed information about our different methods for cDNA synthesis and automated library preparation:
