miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Power Labeling Kits

Fast and simple labeling of microRNA from animals, plants and viruses for subsequent microRNA microarray expression profiling.

  • Simple two-step protocol for RNA labeling – no small RNA enrichment required
  • New Hi-Power labeling kit nearly doubles signal intensities – use substantially less sample
  • Consistent and reliable results
  • Uniform labeling
  • Compatible with all common microarray scanners

miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Power Labeling Kits

Fast and convenient RNA labeling

The miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Power Labeling Kits provide a fast and simple method for fluorescent labeling of total RNA samples from animals, plants and viruses. All small RNAs are uniformly labeled.

The kits are the perfect complement to Exiqon’s highly sensitive and specific miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Arrays. Hybridize the labeled RNA directly to the arrays without additional microRNA enrichments or other time-consuming handling steps.

The miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Power Labeling Kits use a simple and fast two-step protocol (Figure 1):
  • 5’-phosphates are removed from the microRNA termini using Calf Intestinal Alkaline Phosphatase (CIP).
  • A fluorescent label is enzymatically attached to the 3’-end of the microRNAs in the total RNA sample. After an enzyme inactivation step, the sample is ready for hybridization.
The dyes used (Hy3™ and Hy5™) are spectrally equivalent to the well-known Cy3™ and Cy5™ fluorophores.

A kit for every application

Two different labeling kits are available:
  • miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Power Labeling Kit – This is our well-known RNA labeling kit. It combines ease-of-use with high performance uniform labeling.
  • miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Hi-Power Labeling Kit – This is our new and improved labeling kit. It offers a truly amazing performance with an almost doubling of the signal intensity compared to our standard labeling kit (See the 'Experimental data' tab above). This means that the amount of sample can be reduced by almost half without sacrificing the quality of the microarray data.
Both kits are available for single or dual color labeling of total RNA which make the kits very flexible.

Uniform labeling

As shown in Figure 1, our Power Labeling Kits incorporate only one fluorescent label per microRNA resulting in uniform labeling, independent of the extreme 3’-end sequence of the microRNA.

Hi-Power labeling nearly doubles the signal intensity

Exiqon's new miRCURY LNA™ Hi-Power microRNA Labeling Kit has been substantially improved and now offers almost double signal-to-noise ratios compared to our previous labeling kit (Figure 2). This means that microRNAs which are expressed at very low levels close to background can now be clearly distinguished and accurately detected. Using the Hi-Power labeling kit, it is therefore possible to detect more microRNAs from the same amount of input RNA (Figure 3). As seen in Figure 4, the same number of microRNAs are detected with half the amount of RNA using the Hi-Power labeling kit.

Although there is a dramtic difference in the performance of the labeling kits, the labeling patterns of the kits are very similar (Figure 5). This means that microarray data produced using the Power labeling kit can be reproduced using the miRCURY LNA™ Hi-Power microRNA Labeling Kit.
