Agilent Technologies has introduced three new microRNA designs: the human miRNA microarray v2.0, the mouse miRNA microarray v1.0, and the rat miRNA microarray v1.0.
According to the company, the updated human array contains 723 human and 76 human viral probe sets. The updated mouse array contains 567 mouse and 10 mouse gamma herpes virus miRNAs. The rat array contains all 350 known rat miRNA probe sets.
Applied Biosystems has introduced a new set of TaqMan-based miRNA analysis tools.
According to the company, the tools are designed to determine the activity, or profile the expression levels, of large numbers of miRNA molecules from trace amounts of RNA sample.
