The QuantiGene Plex Gene Expression Assay is comprised of three product kits, each sold separately. In addition to your Luminex instrument of choice, items such as magnetic plate washers and shakers are also needed. Use the QuantiGene Plex panel configurator tool to order your panel, and ensure you have the rest of the items listed below before running your assay. For additional help, please contact your sales specialist or request more information here.
The QuantiGene Plex panel configurator tool guides you through a few short questions to help you choose between published pre-configured panels, building your own panel based on common pathways, or designing a completely custom panel based on your unique gene expression analysis needs.
All QuantiGene Plex panels contain a target-specific probe set and magnetic capture beads. There are over 22,000 validated gene targets to choose from, but if you cannot find your target of interest, it can be added to your custom panel for a small design fee. We functionally verify every new panel, and custom panels are designed, built, validated, and shipped within 3 weeks of your order.
It is recommended that every panel include 3–5 housekeeping genes to enable data normalization using a geometric mean. For more guidance on selecting housekeeping genes and recommendations based on expected expression level and sample types used, download the Defining a QuantiGene Plex Assay Panel application note .
