Small RNAs are short (<200 nt in length) and usually non-coding RNA molecules. There are several biologically relevant and functionally diverse classes of sRNA of specific sizes and produced by different, genetically separable pathways. Small RNAs include miRNA, siRNA, piRNA, snoRNA, snRNA, tsRNA, and srRNA. One of the most representative and significant functions of small RNA is RNA silencing (RNAi), in this case, endogenously expressed microRNA (miRNA) or exogenously derived small interfering RNA (siRNA) induces degradation of the complementary mRNA.
The innovation of large-scale, next-generation sequencing has exponentially increased knowledge of RNA biology, with regard to the diversity, abundance, and function of various RNA molecules. Small RNA-seq is a powerful tool for analyzing small RNAs such as miRNAs, siRNAs, and piRNAs in a single sequencing run, allowing the evaluation and discovery of novel small RNA molecules and the prediction of their functions. These RNA-seq methods have provided an even more complete characterization of small RNA and promised further applications.
Our technologies at single-base resolution allow for small RNA detection from very small amounts of cellular materials, which can help you detect pre-known small RNA, discover new small RNA, and examine all small RNA for differential expression in any sample. We generate small RNA sequencing libraries directly from total RNA and Capture the complete range of small RNAs, to understand the roles they play. this will provide you with a comprehensive and efficient approach to understand post-transcriptional regulation and to discover novel biomarkers.
Explore how biofluid profiling using NGS helps researchers understand functions and dynamics of small RNA.
siRNA is the intermediate utilized by RNA interference (RNAi), used in molecular biology for transient silencing of targeted genes. Combining with our gene expression analysis, we enable you to study the role of siRNA in cell signaling and regulation mechanisms or the function of artificial siRNAs in drug development.Learn More

When extracting total RNA, it is recommended not to use column-based reagents to avoid losing small RNA fragments. If providing small RNA samples directly, you can use specialized small RNA extraction kits for extraction.
We can perform small RNA library sequencing on a wide range of samples, including total RNA from animals, plants, microorganisms, small RNA fragments under 200 nucleotides, gel-purified small RNA samples, cell cultures, serum/plasma, tissue fluid, FFPE samples, RIP samples, exosomes, and more, as long as they meet our Sample Submission Requirements.
Total RNA often experiences slight degradation, and natural degradation processes occur within living organisms. As a result, experiment data may contain minor mRNA degradation fragments. However, this proportion is typically low and depends on the quality of the total RNA samples.
Customers should provide the genome of the relevant species and related information about exons, introns, and repeat elements. If the genome of the specific species is not available, information from a closely related species should be provided.
