Specialty TaqMan array plates

Use our Specialty Plating service if you need 384-well TaqMan array plates, or if you need custom TaqMan Assays plated on your 96- or 384-well plates.  96-well plates containing predesigned TaqMan Gene Expression Assays can be configured and ordered online.

TaqMan specialty plates offer the convenience of TaqMan Assays pre-plated according to your specifications.

This can significantly reduce pipetting error and overall effort in loading your plate and analyzing your samples. Just tell us how you want to configure your plate and we will manufacture it. When your specialty-plated TaqMan Assays arrive, simply add your sample and master mix, and start thermal cycling.

Specialty TaqMan array plates are available in these formats and formulations:

  • 96- or 384-well plates
  • 5–20 µL final reaction volumes
  • All TaqMan assay types are supported: gene expression, Advanced miRNA, classic chemistry miRNA, SNP genotyping, DME, copy number variation, and mutation detection
  • Custom and predesigned assays
  • Assays dried onto the plate or in liquid format
  • MicroAmp Optical fast 0.1-mL and standard 0.2-mL 96-well plates for use with a wide range of instruments including the StepOnePlus, 7500, 7900HT, ViiA 7, and QuantStudio 6/7/12K Flex real-time PCR systems
  • MicroAmp EnduraPlate fast 0.1-mL and standard 0.2-mL 96-well plates for use with Bio-Rad™ and Agilent™/Strategene™ real-time PCR systems
  • Email Specialty_Plates@thermofisher.com to determine whether we have plates that are compatible with your instrument

Specialty TaqMan array cards

taqman-array-cards-230x195

Use our Specialty service if you need TaqMan array cards containing custom TaqMan Assays, or if you want a layout not supported by our online configurator tool.  Preconfigured and flexible-content gene expression TaqMan array cards are available for specific pathways, and custom TaqMan array cards using predesigned TaqMan Gene Expression Assays can be configured online.  In addition, TaqMan array cards containing predesigned TaqMan miRNA Assays can be configured online.  Both classic chemistry TaqMan miRNA Assays and TaqMan Advanced miRNA Assays are supported.

Our TaqMan array card is a 384-well microfluidic card, designed for performing 384 simultaneous real-time PCR reactions without the need for expensive liquid-handling automation. TaqMan array cards are preloaded with dried-down, high-quality TaqMan Assays (TaqMan probes and PCR primer sets), ready for 1 to 8 samples to be run in parallel against 12 to 384 TaqMan Assay targets.

Specialty TaqMan array cards are available in these formats and formulations:

  • All TaqMan assay types are supported: gene expression, Advanced miRNA, classic chemistry miRNA, SNP genotyping, DME, copy number variation, and mutation detection
  • Custom and predesigned assays
  • TaqMan array cards are compatible with the following Applied Biosystems real-time PCR systems containing an array card block:  7900HT, ViiA 7, and QuantStudio 7 and 12K Flex.

Specialty TaqMan OpenArray plates

taqman-openarray-plates-230x195

Use our Specialty service if you need TaqMan OpenArray plates using a layout not supported by our online configurator tool.  Preconfigured and flexible-content gene expression OpenArray plates are available for specific pathways, and custom TaqMan OpenArray plates using predesigned and/or custom TaqMan Gene Expression Assays can be configured online.  In addition, TaqMan OpenArray plates containing predesigned TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assays can be configured online.

OpenArray technology is an affordable real-time PCR–based format that minimizes reagent use and helps greatly decrease the price per data point, so more samples can be run within the same budget. One OpenArray plate can hold as many samples as eight traditional 384-well plates.

Specialty TaqMan OpenArray plates are available in these formats and formulations:

  • Many TaqMan assay types are supported: gene expression, Advanced miRNA, classic chemistry miRNA, SNP genotyping, DME, and copy number variation
  • Custom and predesigned assays
  • Layouts not supported by our online configurator tools
  • TaqMan OpenArray plates are compatible with the QuantStudio 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System containing an OpenArray block

How to order specialty TaqMan OpenArray plates:

  • Work with our QuantStudio team and your sales representative to order the OpenArray plates
  • The QuantStudio team can be reached at QuantStudioFrontDesk@thermofisher.com
  • One of our representatives will contact you in approximately 2–3 days to discuss your order
  • Your specialty OpenArray plates will arrive approximately 6–8 weeks after you place your order
