Scatter plots demonstrate the reproducibility and repeatability of the TaqMan® miRNA assays. We examined the miRNA expression in three brain (A), two testes (B), and two PBMC (C) specimens. Assays that had CT values > 35 were removed from the analysis and correlation of the data were evaluated by Spearman test. Expression of miRNAs was also examined in the same lung specimen at four different time points (T1 to T4) within a five-month time frame to show the repeatability of the data (D).
