miRCURY LNA miRNA Custom PCR Panels
Design your own custom-formatted 96- and 384-well qPCR plates for the miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR System
miRCURY LNA miRNA Custom Panels are ready-to-use 96- and 384-well plates containing individual miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR Assays according to your particular requirements. Both forward and reverse PCR amplification primers are miRNA-specific and are optimized with LNA technology, enabling extremely sensitive and specific miRNA quantification with the miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR System. Each well contains sufficient primer set for one 10 µl reaction.
The former Exiqon "miRCURY LNA Universal RT microRNA PCR System" has been updated to the "miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR System" with new reagents that ensure the same superior performance:
The Exiqon v4 miRCURY LNA Universal RT microRNA PCR System reagents will continue to be available in limited quantities during a transition period. To order, please contact our Support Team directly.
Top performance in specificityThe miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR System is the only miRNA quantification platform with absolute specificity (see the miRQC study published in Nature Methods) and out-performed another probe-based miRNA qPCR platform in specificity tests (see figure Specificity test alongside competitor probe-based miRNA qPCR system). This eliminates false positives and ensures only robust and reliable miRNA signals.
The easy-to-follow, 3-hour protocol saves you both time and effort in the laboratory. Simply dilute the synthesized cDNA, combine it with the miRCURY LNA SYBR Green Master Mix and aliquot into the PCR plate, which is then ready to run in your real-time PCR instrument. The number of pipetting steps is reduced to a minimum, reducing technical variation. As a result, you can achieve extremely high reproducibility from day-to-day and even site-to-site (see figures Excellent day-to-day reproducibility and Excellent site-to-site correlation). High reproducibility is even possible when profiling difficult samples, such as RNA purified from serum (see figure Excellent reproducibility between RT reactions on total RNA from serum).
Design your own 96- or 384-well miRNA qPCR plates based on a fully flexible layout and several convenient, predefined layouts. Place predesigned miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR Assays or your own Custom miRCURY PCR Assays into the panel using an intuitive and easy-to-use online plate configurator. The panels are delivered ready-to-use, with one single assay per well for a 10 µl reaction volume. Just add cDNA and miRCURY LNA SYBR Green Master Mix.
CoverageCustom miRNA PCR Panels are available in 2 different formats:
Custom miRNA PCR Panels come with a pre-positioned interplate calibrator (IPC) in replicates that allow optimal calibration and control assessment in multi-plate studies. The IPC is mandatory but can be re-positioned to suit your preferred plate layout. In additional, the panel is displayed with one or more pre-positioned UniSp6 RNA Spike-in controls (CP). RNA spike-in controls may be used for monitoring the cDNA synthesis or RNA purification. The UniSp6 CP assay can be removed and substituted by miRNA primer set(s) or other RNA spike-in control assays. Alternative RNA spike-in controls include UniSp2, UniSp4, UniSp5 and cel-miR-39-3p.
Add custom assaysIt is now possible to add custom assays to your custom plate. Custom assays are designed through one of our custom assay design tools. Design LNA-enhanced PCR primers for sequences not available among our predesigned assays, e.g., for novel miRNAs identified using next-generation sequencing.
miRNA expression profiling with miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR Panels is straightforward and robust. First, prepare cDNA using the miRCURY LNA RT Kit. Second, add a premix of cDNA, miRCURY LNA SYBR Green PCR Master Mix and RNase-free water to a miRCURY miRNA PCR Panel. Third, run the reaction in a real-time PCR cycler.
