Applied Biosystems™ TaqMan™ MicroRNA Assays are innovative tools for miRNA research—from isolation through discovery, profiling, quantitation, validation and functional analysis. There are now even more choices for detection of mature, biologically active miRNA, designed to support a growing range of miRNA applications. The new Applied Biosystems™ TaqMan Advanced miRNA Assays use ligation-based universal reverse transcription for a streamlined and highly sensitive workflow. The standard TaqMan MicroRNA Assays, which employ target-specific stem-loop reverse transcription primers for 3’ extended templates, continue to cover a range of species using standard TaqMan Assay–based real-time PCR.

Now available: TaqMan Advanced miRNA assays in card, plate, and OpenArray format

Additional miRNA assays by type

Applied Biosystems™ TaqMan™ Non-coding RNA Assays for reliable detection and quantitation of non-coding human, mouse, or rat transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides.

Custom assays to quantitate small RNA are ideal to quantitate your small RNA when a predesigned assay is unavailable—all you need is the sequence of interest.

miRNA assays by format

Order your TaqMan MicroRNA Assays preplated into Fast or standard 96-well plates with the Applied Biosystems™ TaqMan™ Custom Plating Service. Perfect for analyzing a large number of samples for a few target miRNAs or noncoding RNAs, or the converse, evaluating a few samples for a large number of targets.

384-well cards are ideal for profiling studies across a small number of samples (up to 8 samples per card) or with limited sample material (each reaction requires only 2 µL of sample) and are compatible with Applied Biosystems™ ViiA™ 7 and 7900HT real-time PCR systems.

Order your TaqMan MicroRNA Assays preplated into Fast or standard 384-well plates with the TaqMan Custom Plating Service. Perfect for analyzing a large number of samples for a few target miRNAs or non-coding RNAs, or the converse, evaluating a few samples for a large number of targets.

These plates accommodate 3,072 reactions at once, delivering the high-throughput capabilities required for large profiling studies. Designed for use with the Applied Biosystems™ OpenArray™ Real-Time PCR System and the new Applied Biosystems™ QuantStudio™ 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System.
