Matthias Hackl, CEO/CSO of TAmiRNA, visited Japan between November 11th and 18th to join Summit Pharmaceutical international to introduce TAmiRNA to 12 medium- and large-size pharmaceutical companies. Matthias presented information on microRNA and mRNA biomarker discovery in liquid biopsies using TAmiRNA´s unique miND® pipeline for absolute quantification of microRNAs. In addition, Matthias joined a seminar on “Manufacturing and omic-based characterization of extracellular vesicles as drug products” organized by the local partner Summit Pharmaceutical International. In his talk, Matthias explained to >70 representatives from Japanese Universities and Pharmaceutical industry TAmiRNA’s the advantages of full molecular characterization of exosomes and extracellular vesicles (EVs) to determine EV composition, consistency, and mode-of-action.
Today we announce that TAmiRNA has received ISO 13485:2016 certification for its Medical Device and Quality Management System after successfully completing the audit through Germany-based notified body MDC. This ISO certification indicates that TAmiRNAs quality management system meets the most current regulatory requirements applicable to the medical device industry. "We are very proud of this certification as it demonstrates the commitment of our team to meet customer and international regulatory expectations," said Matthias Hackl, Co-Founder and CEO of TAmiRNA. ISO 13485:2016 is an internationally recognized quality systems standard tailored to the development and manufacturing of medical devices, including in-vitro diagnostic tests. This certification represents an important milestone for our company, and reflects our rigorous and risk-based approach [...]

We want to draw your attention to our most recent publication where we investigated platelet-enriched miRNAs (thrombomiRs) as suitable candidates for monitoring antiplatelet therapy. The study provides evidence that thrombomiRs are promising biomarker candidates for monitoring the extent of platelet inhibition. This could enable stratification of patients depending on their response to antiplatelet therapy and guide treatment decisions. click here to read the paper
The collaboration between Biogenity and TAmiRNA is a big step towards further enabling our clients to identify new biomarkers that can be used to diagnose disease, monitor treatment response, and predict patient outcomes. And an important step to advance omics research and bring better healthcare to future generations. click here to read the press release
TAmiRNA has launched an innovative NGS technology for absolute quantitation of miRNAs and other small RNAs , the miND® (microRNA Next-Generation Sequencing Discovery) spike-in. The miND® spike-in has been developed for small RNA sequencing experiments and absolute quantitation of microRNAs in any biological matrix and species, overcoming previous challenges of quality control and difficulty in achieving absolute quantitation of miRNAs across different biological matrix and species. click here for more Information on the miND spike-ins
TAmiRNA has launched its latest hepatomiR® CE-IVD testing kit that can measure levels of three important liver-enriched microRNAs (liver miRNAs) in human blood to determine a patient’s liver function. TAmiRNA’s microRNA-based hepatomiR® kit is worldwide the first approved CE-IVD test to measure microRNA liver biomarkers in human plasma. The new microRNA-based hepatomiR® technology represents a milestone previously restricted to research use only (RUO) testing. click here for more Information on the hepatomiR-kit

The “Houska“ Prize, awarded annually by the B&C Foundation, is Austria´s biggest private award for applied research. Dr. Michael Nodine, Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology (GMI), was nominated for his work on the development of methods for nucleic acid quantification. A major issue they encountered was the lack of absolute quantification of small RNA levels, making the comparison between tissues difficult. To overcome this problem, Michael and his team, developed a set of synthetic small RNA Spike-Ins that could be added to these tissue samples. This technology allows us to accurately quantify the levels of different small RNAs that could play a role in several human diseases, ranging from cancer to cardiovascular disease. In 2019, GMI [...]

We want to draw your attention to the latest review of TAmiRNA and the King's College London, in Cardiovascular Diabetology. "microRNAs as Promising Biomarkers of Platelet Activity in Antiplatelet Therapy Monitoring." Krammer TL, Mayr M & Hackl M. Int. J. Mol. Sci. 2020, 21(10), 3477; doi.org/10.3390/ijms21103477 In this review, we explain the secretion of miRNAs upon platelet activation and discuss the potential use of platelet-related miRNAs as biomarkers for CVD and antiplatelet therapy monitoring, but also highlight remaining gaps in our knowledge and uncertainties regarding clinical utility. click here to read the story
TAmiRNA & Vivomicx announce the introduction of new technology to make preclinical drug discovery and drug development more efficient.
TAmiRNA & Vivomicx have combined their technologies of laser microdissection and high sensitivity qPCR, which enables the quantitative analysis of cell-type specific RNA expression in complex tissues. Using this protocol TAmiRNA & Vivomicx have already been able to demonstrate: the profound difference of RNA expression between whole tumor and subsets of cells within the tumor and the large heterogeneity in RNA expression between colorectal* tumor compartments such as tumor, stroma and tumor endothelial cells. * Note: the technology can be utilized for almost any tissue sample. The combination of Vivomicx and TAmiRNA´s proprietary protocols is clearly superior to the current standard where only whole tumor material is analyzed, and marks another step on the road to make the [...]
