nCounter® miRNA Expression Panels

Helping Your Research

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. With nCounter miRNA Expression Panels, you can:

  • Reliably detect and quantitate the most biologically relevant human, mouse, or rat miRNAs directly from FFPE, blood, or biofluids
  • Skip laborious library prep and process your samples with less than one hour of hands-on time 
  • Experience unparalleled reproducibility and specificity with a dynamic range of six logs
  • Receive publication-ready figures within 24 hours with robust, off-the-shelf data analysis solutions

How It Works

nCounter miRNA Expression panels are designed to provide a sensitive, reproducible, and highly multiplexed method for detecting miRNAs in total RNA across all biological levels of expression. The assay can be run on total RNA isolated from any source, including formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue sections

Signatures for Viral Infection and Inflammation in the Proximal Olfactory System in Familial Alzheimer’s Disease.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterized by deficits in olfaction and olfactory pathology preceding diagnosis of dementia. Here we analyzed differential gene and protein expression in the olfactory bulb (OB) and tract (OT) of familial AD (FAD) individuals carrying the autosomal dominant presenilin 1 E280A mutation.

Spatial molecular and cellular determinants of STAT3 activation in liver fibrosis progression in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Background & Aims: The prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and its severe form, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), is increasing. Subjects with NASH often develop liver fibrosis and advanced liver fibrosis is the main determinant of mortality in NASH patients.

Local IL-23 is required for proliferation and retention of skin-resident memory TH17 cells.

The cytokine interleukin-23 (IL-23) is critical for development and maintenance of autoimmune inflammation in nonlymphoid tissues; however, the mechanism through which IL-23 supports tissue-specific immunity remains unclear. In mice, we found that circulating memory T cells were dispensable for anamnestic protection from Candida albicans skin infection, and tissue-resident memory (TRM) cell-mediated protection from C.
