Products & Services Instruments Biomark X

Biomark X

The new benchmark in genomics

Biomark™ X and a portfolio of integrated fluidic circuits (IFCs) and reagent kits facilitate a broad range of applications and throughput needs using real-time PCR. The versatility of the platform allows for both standard assays such as the Advanta™ Sample ID Genotyping Panel and custom assays produced using D3™ design services. Additional assays and sample-to-answer solutions are also available through a Developers Program that delivers customized assay design, panel design and automated solutions.

Technology

Integrated fluidic circuits are the hallmark of the Biomark X™ system, supporting varied configurations of samples and assays for multiple applications. Each Dynamic Array™ IFC is precision-manufactured to exacting standards of performance and reliability. Our revolutionary IFCs empower genomics studies by automating molecular biology in nanoliter reaction volumes. These reduced volumes require fewer of your precious samples and assay reagents, reducing costs while achieving the high-quality, consistent results your work requires.
