The total number of instruments is so low? What would you expect it to be? They're approaching the number of Sanger-based sequencers out on the market. To reach PCR-level placements they'll have to bring the box prices down substantially <$10k? <$5k?)

Where are you getting your estimates? Illumina made $592M in revenue last quarter (mostly reagents, followed by instruments). And what makes you think they only have 10k customers? While that's roughly the number of sequencing machines they've sold, each machine surely represents many more than one customer.
