These TaqMan® assay beads provide a simple, reliable, and rapid method for detecting the presence of a specific bacterial or viral target. The assay uses PCR to amplify a DNA target unique to the microorganism and TaqMan® probe to detect and quantify the target, all in an an easy-to-use, lyophilized bead format. TaqMan® assay beads deliver the fastest RT-PCR run times on the market (<40 minutes in Fast mode). Simply add 30 µL of purified DNA to the beads and run on Fast or standard instrumentation. These TaqMan® assay beads provide microbial detection capabilities and high-confidence results to help accelerate your food and environmental testing needs.

Features of TaqMan® assay beads:

• Convenience—simply add your nucleic acid sample to the bead-containing assay tube and run; no pre-mixing or master mix preparation required
• Consistency—fewer operator steps means reduced error and increased reproducibility across time, users, and laboratories
• Improved data accuracy—an internal positive control is included to monitor your PCR
• Fast chemistry—40-min run time with Fast cycling, compatible with standard or Fast modes

TaqMan® assay beads are suitable for single or multiplex analysis. Because they are run using universal conditions, multiple bead-based assays can be analyzed in the same run. The robust assay design provides highly accurate, reproducible, and reliable results, with the enhanced stability of a lyophilized format. A passive internal reference based on proprietary ROX™ dye is included for precise data analysis.

This product is for environmental testing, quality control/quality assurance testing, food and agricultural testing, and research purposes only.

Custom assays have been bioinformatically developed and tested for performance. Validation services for specific samples types are provided by our Custom Solutions team. Please contact your local Thermo Fisher Scientific representative for more information.
