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
