TaqMan® Non-coding RNA Assays provide a highly reliable way to measure expression of long non-coding transcripts. These assays are based on TaqMan® Assays technology to help provide the high specificity and sensitivity you need for quantification and validation studies.

  • Provides high sensitivity, specificity, dynamic range and unsurpassed data quality
  • Requires no design expertise and delivers faster time-to-results
  • Works under universal cycling conditions
  • Detects only non-coding RNA transcripts

TaqMan® Non-coding RNA Assays detect only the target non-coding transcript. This capability is an alternative to using TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays which are designed to detect one or more coding transcripts of the same gene. TaqMan® Non-coding Assays are designed using the most up-to-date ncRNA annotations from NCBI and RNAdb. To help facilitate the microarray validation workflow, we also offer a number of assays for transcripts that are available on Invitrogen NCode™ Noncoding RNA Arrays.
