microRNAs (miRNAs) have recently been identified as important gene regulators. They exert their function by suppressing specific target genes at the post-transcriptional level. It has been estimated that miRNAs may be able to regulate up to 30 % of the protein-coding genes in the human genome. 


Studies have shown that miRNAs have an unique expression profile in cells that participate in innate and acquired immunity and have vital roles in the regulation of cell development, function and aging.

Moreover, aberrantly expressed miRNAs can contribute to various pathological conditions, such as neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, cardiovascular disorders, metabolic disorders, aging, viral infection and inflammatory related disease conditions. In addition, they have shown to be useful as diagnostic marker and disease prognostic indicators.


VivaCell has demonstrated its expertise in the microRNA research in various successful projects and publications. We offer our technological platform to study miRNA expression and their functions according to your needs. We offer the analysis of miRNA expression in a variety of different samples such as cell culture, blood components, serum/plasma,  various cells and tissues.


        Services in miRNA Research    

VivaCell’s services include for standard protocols and protocols adapted to the needs of the customers using a variety of indications specific in vitro and in vivo systems. Our miRNA analysis services include: 

• miRNA isolation from serum, cells, tissues or total RNA VivaCell can purify small RNA molecules, including miRNA in your sample using the best commercially available miRNA Isolation Kit. RNA quality control is proved prior to expression analysis by using Bioanalyzer or NanoDrop devices. 

• miRNA Microarray Expression Profiling VivaCell offers to study miRNA expression patterns providing comprehensive microRNA profiling service based on microRNA arrays in various types of cells, tissues, disease, developmental and aging states, providing insights into their role in gene regulation with tremendous accuracy and sensitivity. You send us samples and we deliver the data! 

• miRNA quantitation and expression (mature and precursor miRNAs) analysis using state of the art real time-PCR The amplification of a mature or precursor miRNA using specifically designed Taqman based primers, delivers excellent sensitivity in the quantification of miRNA. VivaCell provides a flexible assay for quantifying almost any miRNA as soon as the sequence of any known miRNA.
