Highly efficient Applied Biosystems real-time PCR solutions minimize complexities to help maximize your time and effort
Real-time PCR, also known as quantitative PCR (qPCR), is the gold-standard for sensitive, specific detection and quantification of nucleic acid targets. We developed powerful assay design algorithms, optimized master mixes, created intuitive data analysis software, and built smart instrumentation to help harness the power of real-time PCR across a rich and diverse set of applications. However, our solutions go a step further: every product has been designed with efficiency baked in. And together they work synergistically to bring you a simpler, more flexible, and highly efficient real-time PCR workflow.

Real-time PCR applications
Gene expression is the most common application for real-time PCR due to its efficiency at detecting and quantifying target genes, even at very low expression levels.
miRNAs are small, noncoding RNA molecules that direct post-transcriptional suppression of gene expression. Our solutions enable miRNA research from isolation through discovery, profiling, quantitation, verification, and functional analysis.
TaqMan Protein assays combine the sensitive, specific protein-binding capabilities of antibodies with the superior relative quantitation capabilities of 5' nuclease real-time PCR. They enable fast, easy identification and relative quantification of proteins from small sample sizes or limited numbers of cells—all in a homogeneous assay format.
Real-time PCR is a widely used technology for mutation detection that not only provides excellent sensitivity and specificity when paired with our gold-standard TaqMan Assays, but also provides rapid results and is easy to perform when compared to other methods. Explore these solutions:
