Detect specific viruses and verify targets involved in the immunological response to viral infection
Given the recent SARS-CoV-2 crisis, researchers around the world are diligently working to gain a better understanding of virology, viral infections, and how they spread. With a comprehensive portfolio of real-time PCR (qPCR) solutions addressing the most common viruses causing infectious disease, Thermo Fisher Scientific can help you advance your virology research.
We offer an extensive library of predesigned Applied Biosystems TaqMan Gene Expression Assays, including assays that detect specific viral strains and assays that quantitate the expression levels of immunology transcripts involved in the host response to viral infection. Complement TaqMan Assays with the application-specific Applied Biosystems TaqMan Master Mix and realize gold-standard sensitivity, specificity and reproducibility.
Discover our TaqMan solutions for SARS-CoV-2 research
Many novel research papers have emerged focused on how SARS-CoV-2 enters human cells and how the immune system responds to the infection. These discoveries are critical to build the body of knowledge surrounding SARS-CoV-2 infection and the resulting COVID-19 disease. These studies can point to both vaccine development strategies and therapeutic approaches for treating COVID-19.
Based on these studies, we have identified the most common genes studied and curated specific solutions to address SARS-CoV-2 research. Whether you're studying pathogen biology and host interaction, identifying viable biomarkers, or testing candidate compounds for future therapies, we offer flexible, efficient qPCR solutions to help accelerate your research.

TaqMan Array products
TaqMan Arrays are pre-spotted 96- or 384-well plates or 384-well microfluidic array cards, saving you the time of pipetting many assays into an empty plate. Just add your cDNA and master mix and you’re ready to go.
Custom TaqMan Arrays provide you a blank canvas, allowing you to choose exactly which targets you want to spot on your plate.
Contact our Specialty TaqMan Plating team to inquire about Custom TaqMan 384-well plates.
For a selection of inventoried TaqMan Array products focused on immune profiling and pathways, please visit our immunology research page. These array products are ready to ship with a minimum order quantity of 1 for plates and 4 for cards.
We also offer a variety of flexible content TaqMan Array products focused on targets known to be involved in the immunological response to viral infection. Flexible (made-to-order) panels contain curated gene content, but provide the option to make changes before ordering. They are available in 96-well array plates (minimum order of 6 plates), 384-well TaqMan Array Cards (minimum order of 10 cards), and OpenArray formats. To learn more, visit our TaqMan Flexible Content Panel webpage. Following is a selection of flexible panels related to viral infection:
|Coronavirus entry factors||Human||Mouse||Rat|
|Coronavirus restriction factors||Human||Mouse||Rat|
|Coronavirus immune signaling||Human||Mouse||Rat|
|DNA virus infections||Human||Mouse||Rat|
|Human HIV infection and host response||Human|
