The MassARRAY® System

Less Waiting. More Answers. Targeted Results.

The Path to Molecular Testing Begins Here

The MassARRAY® System is an open platform that can grow with your lab and simplify the genetic testing process with easy-to-interpret data, fast turn-around times, and broad genetic coverage. Available in 96 and 384-well plate formats.

System Workflow

The MassARRAY System workflow couples mass spectrometry with end-point PCR, enabling highly multiplexed reactions under universal cycling conditions to provide accurate, sensitive and rapid genetic analysis. After nucleic acid extraction, approximately 10-40ng of sample advances through a simple workflow with 3 easy steps:


Multiplex end-point PCR followed by a single base extension reaction

Target Sequence Detection

Automated analyte transfer and data acquisition

Data Analysis

Data display and report generation
