The Applied Biosystems TaqMan Advanced Serum/Plasma Card provides the convenience of pre-spotted TaqMan Advanced miRNA assays in a 384-well microfluidic card format. This product contains one card for profiling of up to 188 unique miRNAs in one serum/plasma sample, and includes endogenous and exogenous miRNA controls for normalization of data results.
Features of the TaqMan Advanced Serum/Plasma Card include:
—pre-spotted assays are designed to reduce pipetting error and minimize experimental variability
• Sample savings
—requires only 2 µL of purified plasma/serum or 1–10 ng of total RNA per sample
• Updated content
—assay content updated for mirBase v22
• Easy to use
—just add a mix of diluted miR-Amp and master mix and run the qPCR; no additional pipetting required
• Gold-standard TaqMan qPCR chemistry
—TaqMan Advanced miRNA assays draw on Thermo Fisher Scientific's industry-leading bioinformatics assay design pipeline and verification system to help ensure high specificity and minimal cross-reactivity, even for closely-related miRNA families Product details Number of cards:
1 Number of unique miRNAs (not including exogenous controls):
188 Exogenous controls:
cel-miR-39-3p, ath-miR159a Endogenous control:
hsa-miR-16-5p Samples per card:
1 Compatible with the following Applied Biosystems qPCR instruments:
Viia7, QuantStudio 7 Flex, and QuantStudio 12k Flex Recommended master mix: TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix Notes
• TaqMan Advanced miRNA plates require the use of the TaqMan Advanced cDNA Synthesis Kit
, which uses a universal reverse transcription (RT) chemistry to prepare the cDNA template for use with TaqMan Advanced miRNA assays for detection and quantification of mature human miRNAs in biological samples.
• These plates are not compatible with the first-generation TaqMan MicroRNA cDNA Synthesis Kit, which uses an miRNA-specific reverse transcription chemistry.
