Which TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assay is right for you?

Choosing the best TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assay or TaqMan Drug Metabolism Assay depends on several factors including the instrument and format of the heat block available to you and the number of samples and targets being interrogated.  Consider the convenience of predesigned and pre-plated assays to save time in the lab.

TaqMan SNP Genotyping and DME Assays are available for use with 96-well, 384-well, and OpenArray real-time PCR instrument formats so that you can select the format that best fits your genotyping needs.

Applied Biosystems TaqMan 5’-nuclease assay chemistry provides a fast and simple way to get SNP genotyping results. Each predesigned TaqMan SNP Genotyping and DME Assay in our collection includes two allele-specific TaqMan MGB probes containing distinct fluorescent dyes (VIC and FAM) and a PCR primer pair to detect specific SNP targets. These TaqMan probe and primer sets (assays) uniquely align with the genome to provide superior specificity for the allele of interest. With over 17 million SNP assays available, Applied Biosystems SNP Genotyping Assays make it easy to perform human and mouse SNP genotyping studies with the precision of TaqMan chemistry.

Flexible formats

Choose from a variety of formats and configurations to meet your different research needs. Whether you are looking at a single target or thousands of samples, there is a TaqMan Assay format for you.


Single tubes

  • Low entry price
  • Flexible
  • Run on any real-time PCR instrument

384-well microfluidic cards

  • Low cost per reaction
  • Optimal for medium to large projects
  • Run on Applied Biosystems™ QuantStudio™ 7 Flex & 12K Flex, ViiA™ 7, and 7900HT Fast real-time PCR systems

96- or 384-well plates

  • Optimal for small to medium projects
  • Balances flexibility with streamlined reaction setup
  • Run on any 96-well real-time PCR instrument

OpenArray plates

  • Lowest cost for large projects
  • Ultimate throughput
  • Run on QuantStudio 12K Flex real-time PCR system

To maximize throughput and minimize reagent usage, consider a duplex reaction (FAM and VIC along with ABY and JUN). Be sure to check that the reporter dyes are compatible with your instrument.
