miRNA the Simple Way, with nCounter Technology
Conventional technologies for small RNA profiling like RNAseq can be costly, onerous, and require complex data analysis. In addition, they require RNA purification and multiple enzymatic steps that can be challenging for biofluid samples like serum and plasma. When developing reliable and robust miRNA signatures for different diseases, you need a robust and reliable platform that works well with multiple sample types.
nCounter®miRNA Expression Panels utilize NanoString’s amplification-free technology to do expression profiling by direct quantification of individual RNA molecules. The assay detects miRNAs without the use of reverse transcription or amplification by using molecular barcodes. Therefore, it is easier and faster to validate miRNA biomarkers as compared to RNASeq or PCR-based platforms and the results are highly reproducible.
miRNA Panels designed for you:
- Off-the-shelf assays are available for probing hundreds of miRNAs from human, mouse, and rat
- Create a custom a la carte miRNA assay
- Custom design options
