Product Watch: Exiqon's Species-Specific miRNA qPCR Panels

Premium

Exiqon this week launched microRNA qPCR panels for preclinical toxicology research.

The new Toxicology Focus microRNA PCR panels are optimized to analyze microRNAs present in biofluids such as plasma or urine as a consequence of drug- or stress-induced toxicity. The panels are available for human, rat, monkey, and dog, and hold up to 88 qPCR assays and eight control assays. The panels require sample input of as little as 1 picogram of total RNA without need for pre-amplification.
