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 1.3 million predesigned TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays covering 23 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.
