Enabling total mRNA Recovery in Sequencing for Immuno-Oncology

Customer Problem

  • Adaptive Biotechnologies needs concentrated mRNA purified from T-cells for cDNA synthesis and sequencing of T-cell receptor α β gene pairs using their pairSEQ™ technology.
  • Filter concentration causes mRNA loss, compromising accuracy.

Biomatrica Solution

  • RNAstable® effectively eliminates mRNA loss using simple drying and rehydration of mRNA to achieve desired volume.
  • Use of RNAstable ensures that all cognate T-cell receptor mRNA species are converted to cDNA and sequenced.

Customer Impact

  • RNAstable enables Adaptive Biotechnologies to integrate mRNA purification with cDNA synthesis in one workflow, facilitating sequencing of T-cell receptor genes, critical to pairSEQ technology.
  • RNAstable adds robustness to a workflow with applications in immuno-oncology research, clinical diagnostics and therapeutics.
