SmartRNAPlex™ is a powerful new addition to Millipore’s growing portfolio of RNA profiling products. Until now, analyzing large numbers of samples across multiple microRNAs required splitting the samples into parallel qPCR reactions or using low-throughput technologies such as microarrays. SmartRNAPlex™ overcomes this limitation, affording the user both multiplexing and high-throughput capabilities. SmartRNAPlex™ is designed for the large installed base of standard flow cytometers, which significantly decreases adoption costs. This new tool promises to accelerate the pace of microRNA biomarker validation and catalyze the translation of basic biological understanding into clinical diagnostics and drug discovery applications.
To aid with the design of microRNA profiling studies, the company has developed the Firefly™ Discovery Engine. This web-based tool automatically generates a list of the most relevant microRNAs and associated genes for any keyword or topic by parsing the scientific literature.
“By virtue of its flexibility and universality, the Firefly™ Discovery Platform lends itself naturally to profiling a wide array of biomarkers in a multiplexed and rapidly customizable fashion,” said
“We look forward to launching this exciting new product across our line of flow cytometry instruments,” said
