MagPlex-TAG™ MICROSPHERES

These magnetic microspheres allow the user to easily design a nucleic acid liquid bead array by hybridizing “TAGed” primers or probes to the surface of the beads

MagPlex-TAG™ Microspheres1,2 are oligonucleotide-coupled polystyrene microparticles, or “beads,” that have been dyed into spectrally distinct sets, or “regions,” allowing them to be individually identified by an xMAP® instrument. Each of these uniquely color coded beads has a unique 24 base DNA sequence, called an “anti-TAG,” covalently coupled to its surface. These beads enable you to quickly and easily design custom bead arrays simply by adding a complementary “TAG” sequence to your primers or probes of interest and hybridizing those primers or probes to the anti-TAG sequences on the addressable microsphere.
