How does xTAG® Technology work?
The TAG portion of the name represents TAG technology. TAG technology constitutes the proprietary sequences designed by Luminex for nucleic acid applications.
Sequences have been optimized to minimize cross-hybridization, thus preventing cross-talk in multiplexed nucleic acid assays.
Only 3 TAG
Only three bases are used (TAG), preventing hybridization with native sequences.
Reduced operational time
Isothermal hybridization prevents long experimental design and testing times.
