Does IDT provide a negative control sequence for miRNA Inhibitor (anti miRNA oligonucldoetide, or AMO) experiments?

Yes. A good negative control should be inert and not modulate any genes in the system under study. This is difficult to achieve; however, we propose 2 negative control sequences that we have used throughout our product development and validation process, and which we have found to work very well in vitro and in vivo. You can read more about as well as order positive and negative controls for miRNA Inhibitor experiments under the "Support" tab of our miRNA Inhibitor product page.
