cDNA is selectively synthesized directly from poly(A) tail-containing RNAs, and template switching during reverse transcription is most efficient from template RNA containing a 5´ cap structure. Therefore, the kit works most efficiently with RNA samples with a high RNA Integrity Number (RIN) ≥8. The kit is not suitable for highly fragmented FFPE RNA samples.
