Short tandem repeat (STR) parentage kits

Microsatellites, also referred to as short tandem repeats (STRs), are commonly used for parentage testing, identification, and forensics due to their informativeness and Mendelian inheritance. Our parentage testing kits provide all of the necessary reagents for simultaneous amplification of multiple microsatellite loci in a single multiplex PCR reaction.

Custom TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assays

These assays provide a highly flexible technology for detection of polymorphisms within any genome. Create your own assays by submitting target sequences to our secure assay design pipeline using the Applied Biosystems Custom TaqMan Assay Design Tool. This pipeline has successfully generated millions of assay designs by utilizing heuristic rules deduced from both manufacturing and assay performance data. TaqMan Assays can be run on any of our real-time PCR instruments or used as an endpoint assay on other third-party systems, including the Array Tape platform.
