Somatic Mutation Detection with TaqMan® Assays
New TaqMan® Mutation Detection Assays with innovative castPCR™ technology were specifically developed to detect somatic mutations in key cancer genes. By combining the power of the 2 technologies, TaqMan® and castPCR™, these new assays give you:
With 778 assays for 46 cancer genes available today like KRAS, BRAF, KIT, JAK2, the TaqMan® Mutation Detection Assays provide an innovative tool for your cancer research.

For Custom castPCR inquiries, please provide COSMIC ID(s) for the mutation(s).
If the mutations are not in the COSMIC database, then we need the 200 bp sequence on each side of the mutation in FASTA file format with wildtype and mutant allele in brackets [A/G]. Customer is responsible for repeat masking and SNP masking on the sequence if necessary.
