Omni-mRNA™ is a unique blend of amplified high-quality mRNA purified from various tissues. Using the same reference mRNA in different microarray experiments provides a common denominator for accurate and reproducible comparison of gene expression data. In addition, use of the same reference mRNA among different research groups allows inter-laboratory comparisons as well. Gene Link recommends using pooled reference mRNA as a reference sample in any multicolor hybridization experiment using cDNA or oligonucleotide microarrays.
Omni-mRNA™ pooled reference mRNA are compatible with all commercially available labeling systems. Other applications of pooled reference mRNA include RNA ELISA, Quantigene, HPSA, and a number of other RNA amplification/detection systems.
Omni-mRNA™ pooled reference mRNA size distribution is from ~5kb to 200bp. These can also be used for cloning mRNA of interest by RT-PCR.
