Our Technology - Multiplex PCR

Multiplex PCR


Multiplex PCR is a molecular biology technique for the amplification of multiple genomic targets in a single PCR experiment.

Agilent applies highly multiplexed PCR to develop MASTR assays that greatly enhance the overall efficiency and application of genetic testing that can be operated on standard instrumentation.

The Multiplex PCR technology results in highly efficient, low-cost assays enabling a wide range of clinical and diagnostic applications.

Every assay benefits fully from the main advantages of multiplex-based PCR, compared to enrichment methods:
