All formats and custom designed assays
TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays and arrays provide over 1.3 million predesigned primer/probe sets covering 23 species, the most comprehensive set of quantitative gene expression assays available. You can also design your own Custom TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays.
Innovative TaqMan® Assays for microRNA and other small RNAs, as well as longer noncoding RNA transcripts such as pri-miRNAs and long noncoding RNA. We offer products for noncoding RNA discovery, profiling, quantitation, validation, and functional analysis.
The precision of TaqMan® probe-based chemistry makes SNP genotyping studies more accurate than ever. Choose from 4.5 million human and mouse TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assays or design your own Custom TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assays.
For analysis of biologically important polymorphisms in drug metabolism, we offer 2,700 unique TaqMan® DME Assays that detect polymorphisms in regulatory elements and coding regions in 221 drug metabolism enzyme (DME) and drug transporter genes.
Revolutionary TaqMan® Protein Assays enable fast, easy identification, and relative quantification of protein markers from limited quantities of cultured cells. Choose from predesigned assays for human stem cell pluripotency markers and control proteins, or create your own assay from your biotinylated antibodies.
Our SYBR® Green mixes provide ample performance while offering flexibility for your real-time PCR gene expression applications.
Competitive Allele-Specific TaqMan® PCR (castPCR™) technology detects and quantitates rare sequences in a background of common sequence by specifically blocking amplification of all but the rare-sequence variants. It has great potential for detection of rare mutations such as in circulating cancer cells.
For copy number variation studies, we offer over 1.6 million predesigned TaqMan® Copy Number Assays with human, genome-wide coverage, and mouse and marker/reporter assays. Custom and Custom Plus TaqMan® Copy Number Assay options are ideal when a predesigned assay for a target is not available.
