Custom miScript miRNA PCR Arrays
For SYBR® Green, real-time PCR profiling of custom miRNA panels using the miScript PCR System
Custom miScript miRNA PCR Arrays are panels of miScript Primer Assays that detect your miRNAs of interest. A fully integrated component of the miScript PCR System, Custom miScript miRNA PCR Arrays are available in 96-well plates, 384-well plates, and 100-well Rotor-Discs, in a variety of plate layouts, for use with most real-time PCR cyclers (see figure Plate layouts). To profile your custom miRNA panel of interest, simply prepare cDNA using the miScript II RT Kit with miScript HiSpec Buffer, and use this cDNA as a template in real-time PCR with your Custom miScript miRNA PCR Array and the miScript SYBR Green PCR Kit.
Important note: This product line will be discontinued on May 1, 2021 and will be replaced by the miRCURY LNA miRNA PCR system. We strongly recommend using miRCURY LNA miRNA Custom PCR Panels for better miRNA quantification and profiling.
Custom miScript miRNA PCR Arrays are intended for molecular biology applications. These products are not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of a disease.
The miScript PCR System enables sensitive, specific miRNA quantification and profiling using SYBR Green real-time PCR. The miScript PCR System covers all the steps involved in conversion of RNA to cDNA and subsequent real-time PCR detection of miRNAs.
Mature miRNA profiling with the miScript PCR System uses the following components:
miRNA expression profiling with miScript miRNA PCR Arrays is straightforward and robust. First, prepare cDNA buffered with miScript HiSpec Buffer using the miScript II RT Kit. Second, add a premix of cDNA, miScript Universal Primer, QuantiTect SYBR Green PCR Master Mix, and RNase-free water to a miScript miRNA PCR Array. Third, run the reaction in a real-time PCR cycler. Finally, analyze the data using the miScript miRNA PCR Array Data Analysis Tool (see figure miScript miRNA PCR Array workflow).
Designing your Custom miScript miRNA PCR Array1. Select a plate layout to match the miRNA number and the number of samples you would like to analyze (see figure Plate layouts).
2. Determine the number of plates required for your experiment.
3. Use the Excel file to enter your miRNA list. Supply the mature miRNA ID and miRBase accession number for each miRNA. (Visit GeneGlobe or miRBase to find the miRBase accession numbers for your miRNAs of interest).
4. Include the type of PCR cycler to be used for the profiling.
5. Contact Technical Service to submit your miRNA list and obtain a quote.
