NanoString Technologies, Inc., has announced the availability of the nCounter® Rat miRNA Expression Assay Kit for use on its nCounter Analysis System.

“We are pleased to offer these researchers a product that, true to our entire line of nCounter assays, is both sensitive and simple to use.”

The nCounter Rat miRNA Expression Assay Kit enables researchers to perform direct digital detection and counting of tissue-specific miRNAs at single-base resolution, without the need for amplification.

The kit provides the capacity to perform multiplexed profiling of more than 400 rat miRNAs in a single tube, with specificity and sensitivity comparable to qPCR. Like all nCounter assays, the kit is compatible with multiple sample types, including FFPE samples.

“Our customers investigating the role of miRNAs in toxicogenomics, mutagenesis and neuroscience have asked us to expand our portfolio of miRNA products to enable their research in rat,” said Barney Saunders, Chief Commercial Officer for NanoString Technologies.

Saunders continued, “We are pleased to offer these researchers a product that, true to our entire line of nCounter assays, is both sensitive and simple to use.”

The nCounter Analysis System is a fully automated digital detection and counting system with a very simple workflow. The assay kits contain all of the reagents and consumables required to conduct an experiment. Minimal sample input requirements and compatibility with a variety of sample types, extends the utility of the platform.

In addition to miRNA assays, NanoString provides assays for copy number variation and gene expression analysis. The nCounter Analysis System is currently available for Research Use Only.
