LC Sciences has added probe content from miRBase 17 to its microRNA microarrays.

The latest version of the public miRNA database includes 16,772 entries representing hairpin precursor miRNAs, expressing 19,724 mature miRNA products, in 153 species.

LC Sciences said its miRNA microarrays are based on a microfluidics on-chip synthesis platform, termed µParaFlo. The company said this technology ensures that its arrays have the most up-to-date content "because made-to-order microarrays can be produced on demand."
