Bioline Launches the Full Range of EPIK™ miRNA Assays
CINCINNATI, 2017-01-09 18:12 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Bioline, The PCR Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meridian Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ:VIVO) today announced the expansion of the EPIK™ miRNA Select Assays, originally developed for the study of individual microRNA (miRNA) molecules. In collaboration with MiRXES, Bioline released 800 EPIK™ miRNA Select Assays in March 2016 and this has now been increased to include all of the organisms listed on the miRBase release 21, which represents over 27,000 miRNA assays. Recent studies continue to show the clinical value of individual miRNA molecules which are released from tissues and cells. The expression of certain individual miRNA molecules correlates with specific disease conditions making them promising biomarker candidates for the early detection of disease, prognosis and monitoring of treatment in both humans and other organisms.
Each assay is designed by MiRXESin silicousing proprietary thermodynamics-based algorithms and include miRNA specific reverse transcriptase primers and hemi-nested real-time PCR primers along with Bioline reverse transcriptase, SensiSMART™ with SYBR®1Green and highly optimized buffers. The resulting assays enable detection of extremely low levels of miRNA with very high specificity and allow the discrimination between closely related miRNA sequences.
Marco Calzavara, President of Bioline commented, “I am very pleased to announce the expansion of the EPIK miRNA Select Assays. The increased portfolio of high quality miRNA assays will help even more researchers with miRNA expression profiling, quantification and in biomarker discovery.”
Richard L. Eberly, President, Chief Commercial Officer, stated, “The release of the full range of EPIK miRNA Select Assays and their enhanced performance are an important addition to our portfolio. They increase the flexibility of this highly useful research tool by allowing more of our life science customers to create accurate and non-invasive molecular diagnostic assays in humans and in other organisms.”
