TaqMan Assay

Applied Biosystems TaqMan Array Cards and Plates contain TaqMan Gene Expression Assays dried down in 384-well TaqMan Array microfluidic cards and 96-well TaqMan Array plates, and OpenArray formats. These formats are suitable for gene expression screening and validation applications that require the analysis of tens to thousands of targets. Choose from a broad selection of content or design your own custom array cards or plates.

Do you have a BioRad CFX Connect or CFX96 Touch instrument?

Our Fast 0.1-mL 96-well TaqMan Array plates are compatible with your system. Learn more ›


TaqMan flexible content panels

TaqMan flexible content panels offer an easy way to select and design a combination of assays in the format that matches your experiment. TaqMan flexible content panels can be configured to one of three formats—TaqMan Array Plates, TaqMan Array Cards or OpenArray Plates—and one of three species—human, mouse or rat.

How to order TaqMan array plates based on the model and block of your Bio-Rad instrument

BioRad CFX Connect/CFX96 Touch 0.1-mL blocks are compatible with our Fast 0.1-mL 96-well TaqMan Array plates, which are orderable online in three compositions:

  • Custom—you decide which TaqMan Assays and how many to put on your array plate (minimum order quantity of six is required). Learn more ›
  • Fixed—ready-made, inventoried TaqMan array plates will ship to you the same or next day (minimum order quantity of 1). Panels target common pathways, diseases, and cellular processes. Browse fixed arrays ›
  • Flexible—we compiled a list of assays targeting common pathways, diseases, and cellular processes, but you can make modifications (minimum order quantity of six is required). Learn more ›

All other BioRad instruments/blocks are compatible with Specialty TaqMan array plates, 96-well and 384-well. Contact our Specialty Plating team for more information. If you are still unsure of what product to use contact Technical Support.
