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 :)

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

niroshan 11-20-2015 09:54 AM

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