TaqMan® MicroRNA Cells-to-CT™ Kit
The TaqMan MicroRNA Cells-to-CT Kit makes it possible to perform microRNA (miRNA) expression profiling directly from cultured cells without RNA purification. The kit is the first to offer a simple, complete workflow for miRNA expression analysis from a few samples, or it can easily be incorporated into automated, high throughput applications.
