From cell-free miRNA to your next big discovery

Everything you need to study circulating, cell-free miRNA

The discovery of relatively stable, extracellular miRNAs in serum and plasma has generated much interest in the analysis of miRNA expression as a potential noninvasive biomarker for a variety of diseases. With the rapid development of highly sensitive and affordable technologies to study these circulating biomarkers, liquid biopsy research is quickly becoming a central part of many biomedical research projects; however, standardization of techniques and accurate evaluation and analysis of data will be essential for success. Take advantage of our miRNA resources below to help advance your research.
