Applied Biosystems: Jul 8, 2004


Applied Biosystems last week announced the expansion of its SNP Genotyping Assays and TaqMan Gene Expression Assays product lines.

The company announced the availability of 30,000 new Coding SNP Genotyping Assays, and over 1.8 million pre-designed SNP genotyping assays that can be made to order. These assays add to the company’s existing collection of 150,000 pre-validated SNP genotyping assays.

Additionally, in the gene expression area the company is offering 350,000 new probe and primer sets for RT-PCR analysis of human, mouse, and rat genes. The Taqman assays are available for nearly all exon-exon junctions of human, mouse, and rat gene transcripts and are designed for use on Applied Biosystems’ RT-PCR systems including the Expression Array System, and the TaqMan low-density array products, as well as the Celera Discovery System.

The SNP and gene expression assays can be ordered online. The company is offering the SNP assays through its SNPbrowser software.
