What are TaqMan SNP Assays and Reagents?

Array Tape TaqMan TaqMan® 5'-nuclease assay chemistry provides a fast and simple way to get single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping results. Each TaqMan SNP Genotyping Assay includes two allele-specific TaqMan MGB probes containing distinct fluorescent dyes and a PCR primer pair to detect specific SNP targets. These TaqMan probe and primer sets (assays) uniquely align with the genome to provide unmatched specificity for the allele of interest.

Optimized to work with the TaqMan Assays, TaqMan GTXpress™ Master Mix combines AmpliTaq® Fast DNA Polymerase, UP, dNTPs, Tracking Dye, and ROX™ dye in a convenient single vial format.

For a total solution including the GTXpress Master Mix, the TaqMan Sample-to-SNP™ Kit offers allows the extraction of real-time PCR-ready DNA in 5 min from a wide variety of samples, ranging from blood to buccal swabs to plant tissues.
