Species compatibility table for Ribo Zero Human/Mouse/Rat and Ribo Zero Gold

TruSeq Stranded Total RNA with Ribo-Zero Human/Mouse/Rat and Ribo-Zero Gold have been laboratory tested with human, mouse, and rat samples, but may be compatible to a variety of eukaryotic species.
The following table lists organisms that have been laboratory tested and are fully supported by Illumina, tested in silico, or reported to work by non-Illumina labs. Illumina cannot guarantee rRNA removal based on in silico or non-Illumina lab reported results.
This table can also be found on the Stranded Total RNA Species Compatibility Tables webpage.
