High-precision lncRNA Studies
The nCounter lncRNA Assay is ideal for validation of lncRNA discoveries and other studies requiring a rapid, cost-effective method of screening hundreds of lncRNAs across large sample sets. The assay allows researchers to select up to 800 lncRNAs for analysis in a single multiplexed reaction, using the proven nCounter Analysis System in use today for mRNA, miRNA, and CNV analysis. nCounter’s digital counting technology generates data with unparalleled precision and requires only 15 minutes of hands-on time to generate up to 9600 data points. Probes for lncRNAs and mRNAs can be combined in the same codeset to enable simultaneous analysis of both classes of RNA in the same reaction.
For studies of lncRNA-Protein interactions via RNA immunoprecipitation (RIP), nCounter can quantify immunoprecipitated RNA directly with no amplification. Additionally, the assay is compatible with FFPE specimens, crude cell lysates, whole blood, and other challenging specimens. Minimal sample input and the ability to analyze lncRNAs and mRNAs simultaneously in the same reaction conserves precious samples.
