Northbrook, Illinois - GenUs BioSystems announces a new combined microRNA/whole genome RNA gene expression analysis service for samples yielding as little as 400 nanograms total RNA. Delivering both microRNA and total RNA data from a single 400 nanogram sample provides researchers with an important tool for maximizing the amount of meaningful genomic data available from a single small sample.Special services are available for smaller samples: microRNA from as little as 150 nanograms total RNA yield and whole genome analysis from as little as 100 picograms total RNA.
GenUs provides the highest quality gene expression analysis available from small and difficult samples such as fluorescence-
activated cell sorting (FACS), Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM), OCT-embedded and other biopsy material.
Dr. Scott R. Magnuson, president of GenUs BioSystems commented: "Optimizing RNA isolation and yields for combined miRNA and whole genome expression analysis is challenging due to the delicate nature of miRNA recovery. Our goal is to provide a simple one step service for researchers so they get the most data from each sample."About GenUs BioSystems:
A service laboratory committed to using state-of-the-
art techniques to conduct genomic experiments utilizing microarray technology. GenUs BioSystems standard service includes all materials, processing, quality control, and reporting - including follow-up analysis for a single price. Applications include genomic research, diagnostics, drug discovery, drug efficacy and toxicity studies, and pharmocogenomics. GenUs BioSystems works with academic, government, industry, and clinical researchers worldwide.
