“Establishing robust miRNA methods for valuable results is tricky. The team at Prolytic have been a key collaboration partner. With their 30 years of experience in bioanalytics and broad know-how in different techniques, study types, and substance groups, we were able to quickly develop a reproducible and reliable analysis method for miRNAs.”

Dr. Meike Saul, Research Group Leader, Technische Universität Darmstadt
