The GenoExplorer™ miRNA quantitative RT-PCR kit has been developed and optimized to amplify specific microRNAs, allowing real time quantitation of miRNA expression levels. This system can achieve
The updated miRNA sequences with mature and most precursor probes all on one array. Many species are available.
Positive and negative control probes (eg. 5S rRNA, tRNAs, U6)
High signal to noise ratio and subfemtamole sensitivity with only 1 µg total RNA input (for optimal sensitivity we recommend using no less than 1µg total RNA although 100-200 ng total RNA can generate biologically significant results)
Specificity of up to 94%
Detection of less than 2 fold differential miRNA expression
Highly reproducible results with CV < 15% between experiments
> 3 logs of dynamic range on most scanners (eg. Axon, Agilent)
The most convenient and cost-effective tool to meet your needs

GenoExplorer™ microRNA qRT-PCR Kit
The GenoExplorer™ miRNA qRT-PCR kit is designed to quantify miRNA expression levels that include first-strand cDNA synthesis and quantitative PCR steps. The Kit is sufficient for synthesizing 10 cDNA samples and 100 quantitation reactions (Cat # 2001).
GenoExplorer™ microRNA qPCR Primer Sets
GenoExplorer™ miRNA qPCR primer sets are designed for both mature and precursor microRNAs, and for use with the GenoExplorerTM miRNA qRT-PCR Kit (Cat # 2001), with which the primer sets can be used for 100 PCR reactions. Primer Sets are available for human, mouse, rat, and other species. Refer miRBase for available genes and primers or contact us for details.
MicroRNA qRT-PCR assay performance and technical bulletins provide experiment data on product performance (link qrt-pcr Tech Performance doc)
Primers for both mature and precursor miRNAs are available (refer Senger sequence reference)
