TaqMan® Copy Number Assays employ TaqMan® MGB probe chemistry to evaluate the copy number of genomic DNA targets using Applied Biosystems® real-time PCR instruments and software. Together, the assays and the instrumentation can be used to obtain specific, reproducible, and easy-to-interpret copy number results. In addition, this method is fast and simple, and can be completed in hours rather than days, like traditional methods for analyzing copy number. The TaqMan® Copy Number Assay workflow can be automated so that several hundred to thousands of samples can be processed in a single day. As the simplest method available to study copy number variation, TaqMan® Copy Number Assays feature easy assay ordering and a simple workflow to enable quick results.
