Default 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.

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

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