QuantiGene Plex Assay

QuantiGene Plex Assay is a hybridization-based assay, which utilizes the xMAP LuminexTM magnetic beads and branched DNA signal amplification technology. The assay is based on direct quantification of the miRNA/mRNA/DNA targets using xMAP Luminex beads for multiplexing and the probe hybridize to target sequeces within the sample, elimating the need for RNA isolation and reverse transcription. Apart from that, this assay can be used to qualify gene transcripts from different types of sample, including blood, fresh tissue, FFPE tissue, purifed RNA or cultured cells.

QuantiGene Plex Assay provides high-throughout quantitative gene expression analysis to support a wide range of applications, including multiple focus areas in oncology; gastrointetinal stromal tumors, lung, prostrate, breast, colorectal and pancreatic cancers. Creative Bioarray provides customizable QuantiGene Plex Assay for you to rapidly chracterize miRNA, mRNA or DNA targets for you.
