Exiqon recently introduced the miRcury LNA University RT microRNA PCR line, a new platform for quantitative real-time PCR analysis of miRNAs.

The platform, the company said, includes a universal reverse transcription step, which improves the technology's miRNA expression-profiling sensitivity. It also includes ready-to-use qPCR panels that have been shown to enable accurate and reproducible expression profiling from samples with limited RNA yields such as formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections and serum/plasma samples.
