TaqMan Gene Expression Assay types and formats

Ready-to-go format. Predesigned TaqMan Gene Expression Assays require no optimization and minimize the labor, expense, and bioinformatics expertise required to design qPCR assays.

TaqMan Gene Expression Assays are available in easy-to-use 96-well plates and higher-throughput 384-well array cards. Order from our collection of gene signature panels or customize your own plates or cards. 384-well plates can also be configured with any pre-designed or custom assay using Specialty TaqMan Array Plates.

Applied Biosystems TaqMan OpenArray technology is an affordable real-time PCR–based solution for studying hundreds of samples per day, using the Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 12K Flex Real-Time PCR System with OpenArray Block. Each OpenArray plate can hold as many samples as 8 traditional 384-well plates.

We offer a custom assay design tool to detect any gene product not covered by our predesigned assay collection.
