Exiqon has launched its customizable Pick & Mix microRNA qPCR arrays.

The system allows for the design of a qPCR array based on pre-validated locked nucleic acid-enhanced miRNA PCR primers via an online array configuration tool, according to the company. The array-configuration tool guides customers through selections including choice of format — 96-well or 384-well plate format — array layout, target organism, miRNA assays, controls, and real-time PCR instrument of choice.

The arrays are delivered ready to use, Exiqon said.
