nCounter® lncRNA Expression Assay

Analyze up to 800 lncRNAs in a Single Reaction

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.
