Chinese Scientists Publish New Isothermal miRNA Detection Method with Point-of-Care Potential | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — A Chinese team has published the details of an isothermal nucleic acid amplification method for highly sensitive microRNA detection.

According to the investigators from the State Key Laboratory of Chemo/Biosensing and Chemometrics at Hunan University, the new technique has comparable amplification efficiency to more established nucleic acid amplification methods, but is less susceptible to non-specific amplification.
