The most comprehensive gene expression real-time PCR assay selection in the industry

TaqMan® 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.

Spend more time getting results—not designing assays

  • Offers the highest specificity, greatest sensitivity, and largest dynamic range of any gene expression technology
  • Ready-to-go format: TaqMan® Assays require no optimization and minimize the labor, expense, and bioinformatics expertise required to design qPCR assays

Formats:

  • Assays in single tubes—available in a convenient all-in-one tube format for use on any Applied Biosystems® real-time PCR instrument
  • 96-well plates—compatible with our 7300, 7500, 7500 Fast, 7900HT, ViiA™ 7 and StepOnePlus™ Real-Time PCR Systems
  • 384-well plates—configured with any TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays, including custom assays designed to your target sequences and made-to-order assays—for use on Applied Biosystems® real-time PCR instruments equipped with a 384-well block
  • 384-well microfluidic cards—ideal for microarray validation or other large-scale profiling studies. They are compatible with our Applied Biosystems® ViiA™ 7 and 7900HT Fast Real-Time PCR Systems
  • 3,072-well plates—for use with the Applied Biosystems® OpenArray® Real-Time PCR System to meet high-throughput profiling demands
