Fluidigm this week launched its 192.24 Dynamic Array IFC. The integrated fluidic circuit is designed to genotype 192 samples against 24 SNP assays in a single run, providing 4,608 data points. The firm said the new biochip has applicability in agricultural biotechnology and genome-wide association studies.
The new chip can be read using either the BioMark HD or EP1 systems. Fluidigm also said that customers can run its custom built SNPtype assays on the chip.
