nCounter® miRGE™ Assay

Simultaneously detect subsets of mRNA and miRNA in total RNA for biomarker discovery. The nCounter® miRGE assay is uniquely designed to provide a single-tube, sensitive, reproducible, and highly multiplexed method to detect mRNA and miRNA simultaneously.

  • Choose 5–30 miRNA targets from our pre-defined Human, Mouse, or Rat miRNA assays and 100-200 custom mRNA targets for simultaneous analysis
  • Available for human, mouse, and rat
  • Compatible with total RNA from serum, plasma, FFPE, tissue, cells, and exosomes
  • No reverse transcription, no amplification, and fewer pipetting steps means less chance for errors and bias in results
