TaqMan Assay

Applied Biosystems TaqMan Arrays contain TaqMan Gene Expression Assays dried down in three array formats: 384-well TaqMan Array microfluidic cards, 96- and 384-well TaqMan Array plates, and OpenArray formats. These qPCR arrays are ideal for gene expression profiling and verification applications that require the analysis of tens to thousands of targets.  

Regardless of which format you choose, there is a broad selection of content options available, including inventoried (preconfigured), made-to-order flexible, custom, or specialty designed arrays.

TaqMan Array content options


We offer a number of preconfigured, off-the-shelf, 96-well plates or 384-well microfluidic cards that feature the most popular TaqMan Gene Expression Assays targeting relevant genes for specific biological pathways, processes, or diseases. The advantage of these panels is they ship in 1–2 days and you can order as few as one plate or 2–4 cards.

Flexible (made-to-order)

If you don’t want to design your panel from scratch, our flexible content TaqMan Arrays are the perfect choice. Start by selecting a panel of commonly studied pathways, diseases, biological processes, or cellular functions (human, mouse, or rat). Each panel is pre-populated with expertly chosen assays and serves as a starting point for modification using our simple online configuration tool.  Within the tool, you can easily swap out genes of interest, reposition assays, or change the layout to fit your experimental design. Minimum order quantity is 6 plates or 10 cards.
