The most comprehensive gene expression qPCR assay selection in the industry—spend more time getting results, not designing assays

TaqMan™ Assays are probe and primer sets based on 5’ nuclease chemistry using TaqMan™ MGB (minor groove binder) probes, the most quantitative gene expression technology available.

  • Offers the highest specificity, greatest sensitivity, and largest dynamic range of any gene expression technology
  • Ready-to-go format: TaqMan Assays require no optimization and minimize the labor, expense, and bioinformatics expertise required to design qPCR assays
