PG1500-PJ9167-CO020031-Rebrand-GEx-Brochure-Americas-FLR

The most comprehensive gene expression qPCR assay selection in the industry— helping you achieve highly sensitive and specific detection from your research.

TaqMan Gene Expression Assays are probe and primer sets based on 5’ nuclease chemistry using TaqMan MGB (minor groove binder) probes, the most quantitative gene expression technology available.

  • Offer the highest specificity, greatest sensitivity, and largest dynamic range of any gene expression technology
  • Ready-to-go format: TaqMan Gene Expression Assays require no optimization and minimize the labor, expense, and bioinformatics expertise required to design qPCR assays
Which TaqMan Gene Expression assay format is right for you?
