qPCR assay plates for large and high throughput studies

PrimeTime® qPCR Assay Plates and PrimeTime qPCR Primer Plates

PrimeTime® qPCR Assays for 5’ nuclease assays and PrimeTime qPCR Primers for use with intercalating dye (e.g., SYBR® Green) assays are now available in 96-well plates. Enjoy all the benefits of IDT PrimeTime products, including accurate assay design using current information from NCBI, gold standard performance, and compliance with MIQE Guidelines.

  • Fully customizable—Use the state-of-the-art custom plate design tool for ordering. Design your own master plate; just cut, copy, paste, and fill in as you would with Microsoft Excel.
  • Versatile—Choose from predesigned assays for human, mouse, or rat; or simply enter your own primer and probe sequences manually.
  • Convenient—Get assays with different dye–quencher combinations in the same plate.
  • Affordable—No need to purchase a full 96-well plate. All that is required is a minimum order of 24 assays or primer pairs per plate.
  • Value—Generate your own replicate plates for lower cost per reaction.

Do your qPCR assays come with sequence information? They should. Here Is why—qPCR assays (primer & probe sets) from other suppliers are often provided without sequence information. IDT always gives you the sequences to the oligos you order. And that can be very important. Read why.
