TaqMan® OpenArray® Real-Time PCR Plates
TaqMan® OpenArray® Real-Time PCR Plates deliver world-class TaqMan® Assays in a more flexible, 3,072-reaction high-throughput real-time PCR plate. Five customizable formats give you unmatched flexibility to select from over 61,000 inventoried TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays to be pre-loaded onto OpenArray® Plates. The OpenArray® Real-Time PCR System enables over 8,000 real-time PCR assays to be run simultaneously to generate 32,000+ qPCR data points per day.
TaqMan® OpenArray® Real-Time PCR Plates are delivered pre-loaded with your choice of inventoried TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays in your choice of formats. Simply mix your sample and master mix, load onto the OpenArray® Plate, seal, cycle and image. The OpenArray® Real-Time PCR System’s workflow enables one person to validate or screen up to 576 samples in one day without the use of robotics.
The OpenArray® System is ideal for academic research; AgBio, validating complex disease associations, marker-assisted breeding; and pharmaceutical target profiling and screening, as well as other studies requiring large sample sizes, high performance and reproducibility (Table 1). Data analyses include standard curve and relative gene expression.
