Custom TaqMan Array plates offer the same convenience as our inventoried or flexible (made-to-order) 96-well array plates with the ability to customize your layout to perfectly fit your experiment design. Choose from more than 2.8 million predesigned TaqMan Gene Expression Assays covering more than 32 species, then use our simple, online configuration tool to arrange them in the desired layout. Available in 9 content formats in either 0.1 (Fast) or 0.2 mL (standard) optical plates, you can designate the number of assays, samples, and controls by simply dragging and dropping. Since the plates already contain the selected dried-down assays, the only step left is to add your sample and master mix.

  • Customizable—use our new online ordering tool to select assays, replicates, controls, and more
  • Efficient—setup in less than 10 minutes with less pipetting
  • Convenient—just add master mix and your cDNA sample
  • Easy analysis—compare and analyze multiple plates on our
    Connect cloud-based software
  • Wide compatibility—use on all Applied Biosystems qPCR instruments and BioRad™ CFX Connect™ and CFX96 Touch™ instruments. For more compatibility options, contact Specialty_Plates@thermofisher.com
  • Master Mix—we recommend TaqMan Fast Advanced Master Mix for all TaqMan Gene Expression Arrays

Adding endogenous controls

All plates contain the 18S manufacturing control (Hs99999901_s1). This assay can be used as an endogenous control candidate for any eukaryotic species. Adding 1–2 more candidate endogenous control assays to your plate is recommended, as 18S is not a suitable endogenous control in all experiments. All TaqMan Array Plate Plus* formats include three human endogenous control genes: GAPDH, HPRT, and GUSB, which are expressed at relatively abundant levels across numerous tissues (based on in-house research). TaqMan Array Plate Plus* formats should only be used for experiments with human assays, not any other species.

Need higher throughput?

384-well TaqMan Array plates are available through our Specialty Plating Service. Choose from any combination of predesigned or custom TaqMan Assays on either 0.1 mL (Fast) or 0.2 mL (standard) plates.
