Designer Pro

Archer®’s Premium Design Service

Most panels can be created within Assay Designer — an online design tool for users to build customized RNA, DNA and ctDNA assays using functionally-validated or newly designed primers quickly and economically. For customers seeking an additional layer of validation, there’s Designer Pro. Our expert scientists design, wet lab-validate and optimize the panel to your specifications. Extensive testing, data sharing and reports for signoff during development of your panel ensure optimal performance on your sample type before you receive your panels. Archer also provides full hands-on training and bioinformatic support for a quick and easy transition into your lab.
