TaqPath general purpose reagents for clinical testing and mid- to late-stage biopharmaceutical development

Molecular diagnostics testing, assay development, and biopharma quality control testing with probe-based real-time PCR (qPCR) requires the use of reagents with high levels of consistency and reliability. With stringent cGMP manufacturing, excellent performance, and compliance documentation support, Applied Biosystems TaqPath general purpose reagents are designed to deliver confidence and reliability for even your most demanding applications. TaqPath master mixes are manufactured in ISO 13485-certified and FDA-registered facilities that adhere to cGMP principles. Every lot is functionally tested to help ensure lot-to-lot reproducibility for Ct consistency across a wide dynamic range.


With easily accessible compliance documentation, TaqPath master mixes help simplify regulatory submissions for IVD assay development and biopharmaceutical quality control testing.
