Applied Biosystems TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assays use TaqMan 5´-nuclease chemistry to amplify and detect specific polymorphisms in purified genomic DNA samples. Each assay enables genotyping of individuals for a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and consists of two sequence-specific primers and two TaqMan minor groove binder (MGB) probes with non-fluorescent quenchers (NFQ). One probe is labeled with VIC dye to detect the Allele 1 sequence; the second probe is labeled with FAM dye to detect the Allele 2 sequence.
Custom TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assays can be easily designed at no extra charge by submitting target sequences confidentially to our secure Custom Assay Design Tool.
Benefits: • Proven—gold-standard TaqMan chemistry and robust assay designs deliver accurate, reproducible, and reliable results • Easy—convenient single-tube format and simple workflow provide an easy path to trusted results; no optimization required • Flexible—obtain assay designs for any SNP in the human genome using our secure Custom Assay Design Tool, at no extra charge • Tested—all custom human assays are subjected to a functional test on 20 unique DNA samples
Approximate ship time 4–6 days in North America and 6–10 days in Europe
The free Custom Assay Design Tool can generate assays for the detection of SNPs, MNPs, and indels of up to six bases. These custom assays are designed, synthesized, formulated, optimized, and quality control tested.
TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assays require only three reaction components for PCR: purified genomic DNA (1–20 ng), the assay solution, and TaqMan Genotyping Master Mix (or another compatible master mix) (sold separately).
All assay designs are the product of our industry-leading bioinformatics pipeline, optimized over the course of more than a decade by leveraging manufacturing and assay performance data. TaqMan Assays have been cited in over 40,000 publications and are backed by more than 350 patents.
