TaqMan® OpenArray® technology enables you to achieve the highest sample throughput for mid-density genotyping. In a single day, 24 TaqMan® OpenArray® Genotyping Plates can be run on the OpenArray® Real-Time PCR Platform to generate data for >70,000 genotypes.

  • High-Throughput Results with Ease: With the OpenArray® Real-Time PCR Instrument and OpenArray® AccuFill™ System you can process thousands of samples per day without robotics
  • Simple Workflow: Each TaqMan® OpenArray® Genotyping Plate comes preloaded with the TaqMan® Genotyping Assays of your choice—just add sample and master mix, cycle, and image
  • Experimental Flexibility: Choose any combination of predesigned and custom TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assays and the OpenArray® Plate format that best meets your project needs
  • Reliable: Uses trusted TaqMan® MGB probe chemistry
  • Easy-to-Understand Pricing: No oligo setup fee or hidden costs

MagMAX™ DNA Multi-Sample Kits
MagMAX™ DNA Multi-Sample Kits are designed for rapid purification of high-quality genomic DNA from a variety of sample types including blood and blood cards, tissue, mouse tails, buccal swabs, buffy coats, and cultured cells. These purification kits use MagMAX™ magnetic bead-based nucleic acid isolation technology to produce high yields of purified DNA, free from inhibitors that may affect downstream reactions such as genotyping assays, CE and next-generation sequencing, and high resolution melting analysis. MagMAX™ kits are available in both tube format (for manual processing) and in 96-well plate format (compatible with automated processing).

Select or design TaqMan® Assays using the TaqMan® OpenArray® Plate Configurator or Custom TaqMan® Assay Design Tool, respectively. TaqMan® OpenArray® Genotyping Plates are delivered with assays dried down in the through-holes you specify. Mix DNA samples with TaqMan® OpenArray® Genotyping Master Mix in a TaqMan® OpenArray® 384-well sample plate.
