OpenArray Plates: Custom, Flexible, and Fixed-Content Options
Custom OpenArray® plates
The custom option offers you the flexibility you need to design your own panels using our 1.3 million TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays, 4.5 million predesigned genotyping assays—including 2,700 inventoried drug-metabolizing enzyme (DME) assays—or your own custom TaqMan® assays. Custom OpenArray® plates include a suite of 11 formats to address your sample throughput needs (see Table 1).
Table 1: Custom OpenArray™ plate format
Custom OpenArray® plates for the QuantStudio® 12K Flex system are offered in 11 formats to provide flexible solutions for configuring your plates for gene expression, miRNA, or genotyping analysis.

Build your custom OpenArray® plate
Use inventoried and pre-designed TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays.
Use inventoried and pre-designed TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays, plus one or more custom assays.
Use pre-designed and custom Taqman® SNP Genotyping Assays and TaqMan® DME Assays.
OpenArray® flexible-content panels
OpenArray® flexible-content panels are pre-configured plates of TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays or TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assays for a specific pathway, disease, or research focus area. The assays are auto-populated into the custom design tool and the panel can be modified to include or exclude specific assays. This flexible format enables more precise control and simplified assay setup.
OpenArray® fixed-content pathway panels are pre-configured plates of TaqMan® Gene Expression or SNP genotyping assays for a specific biological process, pathway, or disease state.
- Screen more than 600 genes in your disease-related pathways
- High-quality, fixed-content, off-the-shelf panels
- No minimum order required—shipping as fast as 1-2 days
- Proven, market-leading TaqMan® real-time PCR chemistry
- Pre-designed, wet-lab validated gene targets
