Applied Biosystems TaqMan MicroRNA Assays quantitate miRNAs with the specificity and sensitivity of TaqMan Assay chemistry. A simple, two-step protocol requires only reverse transcription with a miRNA-specific primer, followed by real-time PCR with TaqMan probes. TaqMan MicroRNA Assays are:

  • Highly specific—quantitate only mature miRNAs, not precursors
  • Sensitive—conserve limited samples; requires only 1-10 nanograms of total RNA or equivalent
  • Fast, simple and scalable—two-step quantitative RT-PCR assay provides high-quality results in less than three hours

Our TaqMan MicroRNA Assays catalog is kept up to date with the Sanger database to provide comprehensive coverage with the most current annotation.
