miRNA Microarray Service

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) that regulate the expression of target mRNAs. Microarray-based expression analysis is an ideal strategy for identifying candidate miRNAs associated with biological pathways and generating molecular signatures of disease states. The main applications of miRNA microarray include the screening of differentially expressed miRNAs and differential miRNA target gene prediction.


miRNAs belong to small ncRNAs. miRNAs are a class of endogenous non-coding RNAs with regulatory functions found in eukaryotes, with a length of about 18-25 nt. miRNAs do not have the ability to encode proteins. It is a major regulator of gene expression. Recent studies have shown that miRNAs play a huge role in cell differentiation, biological development and the occurrence and development of diseases.

CD Genomics uses a special probe design to distinguish mature miRNA and miRNA precursor microarray platform, which does not need to separate miRNA, and can directly use total RNA for experiments. As little as 100 ng of Total RNA can be used for RNA labeling, avoiding the influence of separation, enrichment, amplification and other processes. It can be widely used for miRNA detection of various samples, including tissue, serum, plasma, FFPE, frozen section tissue, exfoliated cells, etc.

Sample Requirements

RNA samples or well-preserved tissue/cell specimens; RNA≥200 ng; Species: human, mouse, rat

Sample storage: Cell samples or fresh tissue pieces (cut into 5-10 mg pieces) can be treated with TRIzol or RNA protectant, frozen in liquid nitrogen, and stored at -80°C. RNA samples can be dissolved in ethanol or RNA-free ultrapure water, and stored at -80°C. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing during sample storage.

Shipping Method: The sample is stored in a 1.5 mL Eppendorf tube, sealed with sealing film. Shipments are generally recommended to contain 5-10 pounds of dry ice per 24 hours.
