NanoString launches nCounter Rat miRNA Expression Assay Kit

NanoString Technologies, Inc., a privately held provider of life science tools for translational research and developer of molecular diagnostics, today announced the availability of the nCounter® Rat miRNA Expression Assay Kit for use on its nCounter Analysis System.

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. "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."
