  • Fluidigm Access Array

    Anyone have any experience with Access Array from Fluidigm. Claims to be able to pool 48 amplicons from 48 samples at $7 a sample. It comes in the form of a microfluidic chip and a bit of hardware?



    Anyone know pricing? I've enquired.

    The complete system lists for $79K in the US and the $7 pricing is based on the cost of the chip plus reagents amortized over 48 samples.

      Ooh, quite expensive then ..

        Depends what you are looking for, if you plan on doing targeted re-sequencing for lots of samples then its a good deal since the savings in library prep and sequencing will pay for the system rather quickly.

          Sure, I was just hoping it would be more like $20k!

          UK pricing came through: £50k for the hardware, £230 per chip.

            And I hoped our sequencer would be more like $70K

              hey,

              can we use the fluidigm access array for sequencing in platforms other than illumina

                Yes, it is compatible with all major platforms 454; Illumina HiSeq, and MiSeq; and Ion Torrent PGM.

                  Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
                  by seqadmin


                  Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

                  Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
                  by seqadmin


                  Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
