Unique Benefits

  • The QuantiGene Plex Assay provides DIRECT from lysate measurement of 3 to 80 target RNAs per well with unparalleled accuracy and precision.
  • Quantitatively measure multiple RNA targets simultaneously with unparalleled accuracy and precision

  • Quantitation of original RNA population directly from lysates avoids biases, sample loss, false positive/negative results associated with
    • RNA isolation
    • cDNA synthesis
    • PCR amplification
  • High accuracy and precision using branch DNA (bDNA) signal amplification versus target amplification (PCR)
    • High precision - coefficient of variation (CV) of less than 15% for entire process (sample isolation to results)
    • High accuracy - distinguish percentage differences in RNA copy number - linear assay with low CVs
  • No optimization required for multiplexing 3 to 80 target RNAs

  • Excellent results in difficult clinical research samples, including, H&E-stained FFPE, blood, and skin

Accurate results in a variety of samples

  • Compatible with human, animal and plant tissues, FFPE tissue sections, whole blood, Tempus blood, PAXgene blood, cultured cells, isolated RNA and more

Validated panels

  • Each panel is functionally validated


  • Validation and testing of disease biomarkers (e.g. cancer, neurology, autoimmune disease, etc.)
  • Validation of microarray or sequencing results
  • Predictive toxicology
  • Secondary screening
  • Pathway analysis
