miRNA Services

The Affymetrix and Agilent platforms can be used to perform miRNA studies. Generally miRNA detection is performed by direct labeling techniques. Traditional RNA isolation methods are not very efficient at recovering these smaller RNAs, ensure that the RNA purification method retains low molecular weight species.

Affymetrix Arrays

The GeneChip miRNA Array is a powerful tool for studying the role of microRNAs (miRNAs) and their importance in cancer and other diseases. In addition, miRNA studies facilitate the discovery of biomarkers and disease signatures.

The GeneChip miRNA Array also includes human small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs and scaRNAs), which are short, non-translated RNAs that play a role in processing of ribosomal RNAs following transcription. snoRNAs have also been implicated in the regulation of alternative splicing.Affymetrix miRNA arrays are available in two formats: cartridge arrays for individual samples (miRNA 4.0) and Array plates (miRNA 4.1), available in 16, 24 and 96 sample format.

Agilent Arrays

The Agilent miRNA platform offers an alternative option for miRNA analysis.
