Applied Biosystems TaqMan Copy Number Assays employ TaqMan MGB probe chemistry to evaluate the copy number of genomic DNA targets using Applied Biosystems real-time PCR instruments and software. Together, the assays and the instrumentation can be used to obtain specific, reproducible, and easy-to-interpret copy number results. In addition, this method is fast and simple, and can be completed in hours rather than days, like traditional methods for analyzing copy number. The TaqMan Copy Number Assay workflow can be automated so that several hundred to thousands of samples can be processed in a single day. As the simplest method available to study copy number variation, TaqMan Copy Number Assays feature easy assay ordering and a simple workflow to enable quick results.
