Thermo Fisher Scientific TaqMan Advanced miRNA Assays

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched TaqMan Advanced miRNA Assays, pre-formulated primer and probe sets designed to detect and quantify mature miRNAs in biological samples. Together with the new TaqMan Advanced miRNA cDNA Synthesis Kit, the system is designed for the analysis of multiple miRNA targets, with improved sensitivity for low-abundance targets (as few as 60 copies of input RNA) in samples like plasma or serum, Thermo Fisher said. The cDNA synthesis kit uses a universal reverse transcription step, providing a streamlined workflow to analyze as many as 600 miRNAs from a single RT reaction.
