High throughput transcriptomics.
Made simple, with MERCURIUS

MERCURIUS is based on an improved BRB-seq library preparation protocol, which makes it possible to perform RNA-seq on a large number of samples in a fast, robust and cost-effective way.

They chose Alithea

"The MERCURIUS BRB-seq service was a great way for us to multiplex large numbers of RNA samples for sequencing. We wanted a gene expression curve with a tight temporal resolution, thus, many time points for several conditions. We are very happy with the quality of the results and with the cost benefit.”

"The MERCURIUS BRB-seq service is very cost-effective and it enables accurate comparison of RNA levels among a large number of samples."

"The MERCURIUS BRB-seq service allowed us to plan an experiment with ten times more replicates than usual, and gain insight into the variability and control of gene expression in fly embryogenesis"

"The MERCURIUS BRB-seq service provided us with a cost-effective way to quantify transcriptomic changes from a large set of samples."
