OpenArray Technology

Minimize the cost of your experiment

OpenArray™ technology is an affordable real-time PCR–based solution for high-throughput gene expression analysis, genotyping, microRNA (miRNA) analysis, and digital PCR applications. This unique technology minimizes reagent use and helps greatly decrease the price per data point, so more samples can be run within the same budget. We provide 11 custom formats to suit your throughput needs.
