Customized BioLiqX HS miRNA qRT-PCR Kit for High Sensitivity miRNA Detection
• Pre-amplification step and negation of dilution effect ensure superior sensitivity
• Perfect for low copy number circulating miRNAs in biological fluids, such as plasma
• High specificity for any miRNA(s) of your choice
• Ideal for validating Small RNA-Seq results quantitatively
• Based on CATL technology: BioLiqX Small RNA-Seq results can be validated directly on the same libraries using BioLiqX HS miRNA qRT-PCR Assays
Workflow of the BioLiqX HS miRNA qRT-PCR Assay
Customized BioLiqX HS miRNA qRT-PCR Kits can be produced for you for any miRNA including truncated miRNAs and isomiRs as well as any other short RNA fragment.
The kit utilizes a single-tube protocol for the conversion of all short RNA molecules into a preamplified cDNA library by adding certain reagents and enzymes to the RNA sample in a sequential manner. Subsequently, the preamplified cDNA serves as a template for ultra-sensitive and low-background real-time PCR reactions with Green DNA Dye (a SYBR® Green analog) and miRNA-specific primers. High specificity and sensitivity of BioLiqX HS miRNA Assays are achieved by the optimal concentration of nucleotides, mineral salts, Green DNA Dye and Hot Start Taq DNA Polymerase in the final qPCR reaction. All reactions can be set up at room temperature without the risk of non-specific amplification. The BioLiqX HS miRNA Assays are ideal for detecting low copy number circulating miRNAs in biological fluids but can be also applied to any other sample. The whole procedure can be completed within approximately 8 hours and requires typically a hands-on time between 30-60 minutes depending on the number of samples.
Kit Contents and Customization:
The kit includes: (1) reagents for cDNA synthesis and preamplification (Tailing Buffer, Tailing Nucleotides, Tailing Enzyme, Ligation Buffer, Ligation Enzyme, RT Mix, RT primers and PreAmp Mix; (2) qPCR Mix for Real-Time PCR reaction and vial(s) with miRNA-specific primers for any miRNA(s) of your choice. By default, the kit also includes synthetic cel-miR-39 spike-in control.
The supplied kit size of Custom BioLiqX HS miRNA qRT-PCR Assays can be completely customized depending on your research goals. However, the minimal volumes of the reagents used for the initial preamplification (library generation) are for 24 samples. Besides, the miRNA primers are compatible with the NGS libraries generated by BioLiqX Small RNA-seq Kit. Therefore, small RNA sequencing results can be validated directly on the same libraries using qPCR Mix and miRNA primer pairs from BioLiqX HS miRNA Assays.
