Table 3 Assessment of sensitivity and reproducibility at different miRNA input levels, spanning five orders of magnitude, Pearson correlation of duplicate measurements§.

From: Evaluation of two commercial global miRNA expression profiling platforms for detection of less abundant miRNAs

  The 125 spike-in miRNAs for which both platforms have assays
