Real-time PCR master mix for microRNA analysis

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, noncoding RNA molecules that direct post-transcriptional gene regulation. miRNA analysis requires reagents that are optimized to detect short microRNA targets expressed at low levels.

Applied Biosystems TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix has been optimized for use with our TaqMan Advanced miRNA assays to deliver highly sensitive detection of miRNA targets across a wide concentration range.
