Applied Biosystems TaqMan Pri-miRNA Assays allow researchers to quantitate primary miRNA transcripts with specificity and high sensitivity. Together with a standard reverse transcription kit and a qPCR master mix, these TaqMan Pri-miRNA Assays will enable researchers the opportunity to study miRNA biogenesis.

  • Highly specific―quantitates primary miRNA transcripts and not mature miRNAs
  • Fast, simple, and scalable―two-step quantitative RT-PCR assay provides high quality results in less than three hours
  • Designed using the same verified pipeline as TaqMan Gene Expression Assays
  • Primers and probe are located near the stem loop of interest

TaqMan Pri-miRNA Assays are available for a wide range of species.

Assay components

TaqMan Pri-miRNA Assays are delivered in a single tube containing the specific pre-formulated TaqMan Assay (TaqMan MGB probe labeled with FAM, and forward and reverse primers).

Assay suffix nomenclature

_pri indicates a primary miRNA assay and not a mature miRNA assay.
