They are not yet commercially available -- and I suspect beta testers are under CDA. Still, can't hurt to ask.

Maybe they were passed around in presentations during this week's road trip. Maybe someone managed to pocket one?

Good to know that the Russians and Chinese are still reverse engineering American technology. That's a surefire way to follow and not lead.

It's sad. But it's true.

Only for Russians (and Chinese):

Thanks for the picture! With smaller wells are we also expecting to see a drop in signal? Wondering what the delay for the 318 is...was originally supposed to be released in Mid 2011...

I don't think the 318 is 'late' quite yet. The 316 was promised (and delivered) mid 2011. 318 was promised 6 months after that, which is right about now. I'm guessing we'll see it by AGBT.

I was told today by an Ion Torrent service provider that it is commercially available (though they aren't yet offering it), but I don't see it in the store. Perhaps there is an expanded early access program?

Are they selling the 318, I think we're about to buy the MiSeq, but we can't keep holding on the purchase any longer... any updates on this?

Looks like they just announced the commercial availability of the 318 chip (more or less on time): http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...136921308.html

For me, the surprising statement from this press release was "In the second half of 2012 we expect to increase read lengths on the Ion Torrent PGM up to 400 bases."

Rothberg was talking about 400b reads by the end of 2011 back in June. Has progress really slowed down that much?
