Exosomal lncRNA Sequencing

Exosomal lncRNA sequencing is a method that combines barcoded cDNA library preparation and next-generation sequencing technology to comprehensively detect long RNA sequences from exosomes. We offer this unparalleled end-to-end service to deliver the highest quality sequencing data and accelerate your exosomal lncRNA research. Exosomal lncRNA sequencing can help you analyze all RNA molecules longer than 200 nt in length, including mRNA and lncRNA, and circular RNA (circRNA), from exosomes at one time.


Exosomes are cell-derived vesicles that are widely distributed in many fluids, including urine, blood, ascites, and cultured medium of cell cultures. Exosomes play an important role in disease transmission and intercellular communication. Exosomes contain various proteins, lipids and nucleic acids such as lncRNAs, microRNAs (miRNAs), mRNAs, circular RNAs (circRNAs) and other non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). Exosomal lncRNA expression patterns may be distinct from those on the cellular level. As lncRNAs are found to be closely related to cancer, exosomal RNAs, especially long non-coding RNA, may perform important functions in cell-cell communication and serve as potential biomarkers for diagnosing and monitoring human diseases.

With decades of experience in exosomal lncRNA sequencing, we can generate high-quality, reproducible and reliable exosomal lncRNA libraries and deliver accurate data and comprehensive data analysis using the advanced Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS) and well-accepted computational tools. Our bioinformatics team provides both lncRNA and mRNA information in a single sequencing run, enabling prediction of lncRNA-mRNA association network. Exosomal lncRNA-Seq service can be used to find the molecular marker for liquid biopsy and reveal the mechanism of disease development.

Sample Requirements

RNA sample (concentration ≥ 1 ng/uL, quantity ≥ 2 ug)

1.8 ≤ OD260/280 ≤ 2.2, OD260/230≥2.0, RIN ≥ 6.5, 28S:18S ≥ 1.0.

Please make sure that the RNA is not significantly degraded.

Sample storage: RNA can be dissolved in ethanol or RNA-free ultra-pure water and stored at -80°C. RNA should avoid repeated freezing and thawing.

Shipping Method: When shipping RNA samples, the RNA sample is stored in a 1.5 mL Eppendorf tube, sealed with sealing film. Shipments are generally recommended to contain 5-10 pounds of dry ice per 24 hours.
