y’s GeneTitan family of products consists of the GeneTitan instrument system that runs genotyping and gene expression array plates. The GeneTitan family of products provides a hands-free, automated solution for monitoring gene expression and genome-wide single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) genotyping. QuantiGene Line of Low- to Mid-plex Products The company also offers its QuantiGene line of singleplex and multiplex assays to serve customers in the research and translational medicine markets. Multiplex assays measure different targets from the same sample. These products enable drug target identification through analysis of gene silencing, cell signaling and biomarker validation. These products are compatible with a variety of samples and tissues. The company also serves the needs of the molecular pathology market by enabling the sensitive measurement of ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules in individual cells in tissue samples through its QuantiGene View RNA products. Life Science Reagents The company offers researchers a line of reagent kits, enzymes and biochemicals. Its reagents are complementary to its array portfolio, thus enabling the company to provide its customers with whole product solutions. The company’s reagents include the following: ExoSAP-IT For PCR (polymerase chain reaction) Product Clean-Up, a reagent for the rapid clean-up of PCR products used in downstream applications, such as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing SNP analysis. HotStart-IT line of PCR reagents, reagents that utilize a primer binding protein to inhibit primer dimer formation, with results in sensitive and consistent amplification for real-time PCR. eBioscience Products The company offers a portfolio of antibodies and reagents for use in flow cytometry and immunoassays. Within the flow cytometry market, the company is a provider of multi-color flow cytometry reagents, a subsector of the of the global flow cytometry market. Within the immunoassays market, the company offers a portfolio of easy-to-use immunoassays kits for the quantitative measurement of either secreted or intracellular protein levels in biological samples, such as cell lysates or serum. These assays are in various single analyte and multiplex formats. The company also develops and markets the QuantiGene line of low-to-mid-plex RNA measurement products, with the exception of the QuantiGene View RNA platform which is aligned with the Genetic Analysis and Clinical Applications business unit. Services The company offers high-throughput genotyping services for customers using its genotyping products. Its projects range in size from a few 100 samples to approximately 100,000 samples.
