Fluidigm Advanta Sample ID Genotyping Panel

Fluidigm has launched the Advanta Sample ID Genotyping Panel for the identification and quality assessment of human samples and cell lines in disease research. Developed for use with the Biomark HD system, the Advanta panel enables laboratories to accurately detect a unique genetic fingerprint from samples at each stage of their journey. The panel design contains 96 different SNP variants, including 80 synonymous human variants located in exonic regions of the genome; 10 quality assessment variants; and six gender-confirming variants. New targets for specific sample populations also can be added to customize the panel based on specific study goals, Fluidigm noted.
