Gene Expression Assays

TaqMan Gene Expression Assays

TaqMan™ Gene Expression Assays consist of a pair of unlabeled PCR primers and a TaqMan probe with a FAM™ or VIC® dye label on the 5’ end and minor groove binder (MGB) and nonfluorescent quencher (NFQ) on the 3’ end. Over 1.8 million predesigned TaqMan Gene Expression Assays covering more than 30 species are available in a single tube, 96-well plate, 384-well microfluidic card, and OpenArray™ formats.

All formats and custom designed assays

Design your own Custom TaqMan Gene Expression Assays to study any gene or splice variant in any organism.

TaqMan Gene Expression assays are available in easy-to-use 96-well plates and higher throughput 384-well microfluidic cards. Order from our collection of Gene Signature Panels or customize your own plates or cards. 384-well plates can also be configured with any predesigned or custom assays using our TaqMan Custom Plating service.

OpenArray technology is an affordable real-time PCR–based solution for studying hundreds of samples per day, using the QuantStudio™ 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System with OpenArray Block. Each OpenArray plate can hold as many samples as eight traditional 384-well plates.

A convenient collection of pre-designed TaqMan Assays (probe and primer sets) enables you to normalize the amount of sample RNA or DNA in a reaction.
