TaqMan® Gene Expression Assay Selection Guide
The Most Comprehensive Gene Expression Assay Selection Our TaqMan® Assays are primer and probe sets based on 5’ nuclease chemistry using TaqMan® MGB (minor groove binder) probes, the most quantitative gene expression technology available.
in the Industry
Spend more time getting results—not designing assays
- Over 1.3 million predesigned gene expression assays for 23 species
- The highest specificity, greatest sensitivity, and largest dynamic range of any gene expression technology
- Ready-to-go format: TaqMan® Assays require no optimization and eliminate the labor, expense, and bioinformatics expertise required to design quantitative real-time PCR assays
- Assays in single tubes are available in a convenient all-in-one tube format
- 96-well plates are compatible with our 7300, 7500, 7500 Fast, 7900HT, ViiA™ 7, QuantStudio™ and StepOnePlus® Real-Time PCR Systems
- 384-well plates can be configured with any TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays, including custom assays designed to your target sequences and made-to-order assays
- 384-well microfluidic cards are ideal for microarray validation or other large-scale studies, and are only compatible with our QuantStudio™, ViiA™ 7 and 7900HT systems.
- 3,072-well plates are for use only with our OpenArray® and QuantStudio™ system to meet high throughput demands
