Bioline EPIK miRNA Select Kits
Bioline, a Meridian Bioscience company, has launched its EPIK miRNA Select assays worldwide. These assays were developed to study individual microRNA (miRNA) molecules. The individual assays use the same approach developed by MiRXES for the EPIK miRNA Panel assays; they employs miRNA-specific reverse transcriptase primers and hemi-nested real-time PCR primers along with Bioline reverse transcriptase, SensiSMART with SYBR Green, and highly optimized buffers. This combination of technology enables the assays to detect extremely low levels of miRNA with very high specificity, which makes it possible to discriminate between closely related miRNA sequences, the company said.
