Your new research companion
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is an important research area for the development of psychotropic, cancer, pain, and cardiovascular medications. Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a variety of solutions to assist you with your PGx research. For 120 or fewer targets, quantitative PCR using well-established TaqMan™ Assays combined with the QuantStudio™ 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System and the OpenArray™ platform deliver a flexible, cost-saving, and high-throughput solution. For studies requiring interrogation of 120 or more genetic markers, the Ion AmpliSeq™ Pharmacogenomics Research Panel and Ion PGM™ System for next-generation sequencing enable a highly multiplexed workflow with flexible throughput at an affordable price.

Free online tool translates results to star alleles when using TaqMan® Drug Metabolism Genotyping Assays and TaqMan® Copy Number Assays.
Simple workflows have been established for the analysis of mutations and copy number variants for drug metabolism enzyme (DME) genes, including CYP2D6, that enable you to achieve results in less than one day. Based on your target sample throughput and the number of markers you need to analyze, there is a flexible solution to meet your needs.
Choose from pre-defined TaqMan® PGx panels or design your own using our 2,700 TaqMan® DME Assays plus— custom TaqMan® Assays.
Analyze copy number variants, including CYP2D6, using QuantStudio 12K Flex system for the flexibility needed to adjust your throughput from one to hundreds of samples per day.
Choose the Ion AmpliSeq Pharmacogenomics Research Panel for the simultaneous analysis of 136 SNP/indel events across 40 DME associated genes and 2 CYP2D6 CNV events (gene level and exon 9/*36 copy number changes). Sequencing library generation is simplified with the use of Ion AmpliSeq™ chemistry, enabling highly efficient enrichment of the loci of interest in a single multiplexed PCR. This allows the capture of both genotype and CNV information in a single assay. Also included in the panel are 9 amplicons used to generate a unique sample-specific genetic barcode useful for sample tracking purposes.
This powerful and free online tool accepts both quantitative PCR and next-generation sequencing data and translates genotyping and copy number variation analysis data to star alleles.
