The QuantStudio™ 12K Flex system is a highly flexible, comprehensive real-time PCR platform that leverages the real-time technology of Applied Biosystems in a single instrument. The platform enables the use of the proven, market leading TaqMan® chemistry in a faster, more flexible format. This unique parallel array format enables unprecedented gene coverage and sample throughput. The system can obtain 30.000 data points in a single day, enabling numerous projects to be completed in weeks.

The TaqMan™ OpenArray™ Panels are pre-formatted and inventoried, cost-effective, convenient, and easy-to-use. Results are reproducible and consistent across samples, studies, and labs — for the same data quality from plate-to-plate and lot-to-lot, even with different operators.

Each array consists of 48 individual matrices that enables us to screen 48 samples over 64 separate qRT-PCR reactions (SNP or gene expression) in one array. Control genes (constitutively expressed genes) are included in each array.

technology is applied to screen the expression of genes coding for the following different pathways or functions

  • pharmaceutical target validation
  • animal pathogen detection
  • biotechnology
  • toxicogenomics
  • agricultural molecular testing
  • micro-RNA profiling
  • genomics

available Panels for customers

OpenArray® Pathways are ready-to-use gene panels containing pre-validated real-time qPCR assays. The plates have over 600 assays each and are compatible with multiple sample types. Panels are currently available for human, rat or mouse genes. New panels are continuously under development.
