Bioo Scientific has introduced AIR barcoded adaptors, which allow for sample multiplexing in small RNA, including microRNA, next-generation sequencing reactions.

The adaptors are designed to work with Illumina next-generation sequencers and "increase the scale throughput [of experiments] while reducing costs by allowing the user to pool multiple library preparations into a single sequencing reaction," according to Bioo Scientific.
