Agena Bioscience’s reagents sets, combined with our state-of-the-art assay design and data analysis software, support a variety of applications on the MassARRAY® System and allow you to customize assays for your individual needs.
All reagents sets are available in 96- and 384-well formats.
Genotyping, Somatic Mutation, and Quantitative Applications with iPLEX® Reagents
iPLEX reagents on the MassARRAY System are widely used for fine mapping and validation of large-scale genome discovery studies, as well as development of routine genetic tests for applications such as human sample identification and inherited disease profiling. iPLEX reagents allow for a multiplexing level of up to 40-plex, offering flexibility and a low cost per genotype.
Somatic Mutation Profiling
The exceptional sensitivity and resolution of iPLEX reagents and the MassARRAY System makes it possible detect mutation frequencies as low as 5% in the original tumor-derived template DNA.
Ultrasensitive Somatic Mutation Profiling with UltraSEEK™ Reagents
The UltraSEEK chemistry on the MassARRAY System enables screening for low abundance somatic mutations in heterogeneous tumor and blood samples at less than 1% frequency, and as low as 0.1%.
DNA Methylation Analysis
The EpiTYPER® application and the MassARRAY System detect down to 5% differences in methylation, and can interrogate tens to hundreds of CpGs in amplicons of up to 600 bp.
