The Applied Biosystems TaqMan Advanced Serum/Plasma Card provides the convenience of pre-spotted TaqMan Advanced miRNA assays in a 384-well microfluidic card format. This product contains one card for profiling of up to 188 unique miRNAs in one serum/plasma sample, and includes endogenous and exogenous miRNA controls for normalization of data results.

Features of the TaqMan Advanced Serum/Plasma Card include:
Reproducibility—pre-spotted assays are designed to reduce pipetting error and minimize experimental variability
Sample savings—requires only 2 µL of purified plasma/serum or 1–10 ng of total RNA per sample
Updated content—assay content updated for mirBase v22
Easy to use—just add a mix of diluted miR-Amp and master mix and run the qPCR; no additional pipetting required
Gold-standard TaqMan qPCR chemistry—TaqMan Advanced miRNA assays draw on Thermo Fisher Scientific's industry-leading bioinformatics assay design pipeline and verification system to help ensure high specificity and minimal cross-reactivity, even for closely-related miRNA families

• TaqMan Advanced miRNA plates require the use of the TaqMan Advanced cDNA Synthesis Kit, which uses a universal reverse transcription (RT) chemistry to prepare the cDNA template for use with TaqMan Advanced miRNA assays for detection and quantification of mature human miRNAs in biological samples.
• These plates are not compatible with the first-generation TaqMan MicroRNA cDNA Synthesis Kit, which uses an miRNA-specific reverse transcription chemistry.
