Exiqon A/S has announced the launch of the miRCURY™ RNA Isolation Kit – Biofluids for extraction of small RNAs from serum, plasma, urine and other biofluids.

The product is the first ever specifically optimized for such applications.

The new biofluids kit allows scientists to obtain high quality microRNA from virtually all types of biofluids in just 45 minutes. The miRCURY™ RNA Isolation Kit – Biofluids is optimized to work with Exiqon’s highly sensitive miRCURY LNA™ Universal RT microRNA PCR platform. The workflow is completed in six simple steps without the use of hazardous chemicals such as phenol and chloroform.

In a comment, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing Henrik M. Pfundheller said: “Our customers want fully integrated research systems that allow highly robust and sensitive microRNA profiling in difficult samples such as blood and urine, and we deliver the solution with this new kit” and he added: “We have not only optimized the protocols to ensure the highest yield in the market but have also made sure that the sample does not contain any inhibitors which may jeopardize the downstream PCR analysis”.

The miRCURY™ RNA Isolation Kit – Biofluids is ideal for use with urine samples together with Exiqon’s Toxicology Focus microRNA PCR Panels, and for serum and plasma samples with the Serum/Plasma Focus microRNA PCR Panels, or indeed any of the almost 2,000 pre-validated qPCR microRNA assays available.

The miRCURY™ RNA Isolation Kit – Biofluids which can be used with a centrifuge or a vacuum manifold is provided in pack sizes of 10 and 50 units.

Exiqon offers a complete range of PCR products for microRNA analysis, which includes ready-to-use panels for genome-wide screening of human, mouse and rat microRNAs, numerous focus panels, the fully flexible Pick & Mix panels, spike-in kits, cDNA synthesis and PCR Master Mix kits, as well as unique qPCR data analysis software. Customers that have identified novel microRNAs can take advantage of Exiqon’s proprietary LNA™ chemistry and unique design algorithm through easy-to-use online tool for high quality design of custom microRNA qPCR assays (http://www.exiqon.com/custom-PCR).
