Fluidigm has released an amplicon tagging protocol for the Illumina Genome Analyzer II. According to the company, the 48.48 Access Array integrated fluidic circuit allows Illumina GA users to automatically prepare sequencing-ready libraries from 48 samples at a time for $7 per sample. The array can capture up to 12 kilobases of sequence per sample. Upcoming applications, such as long-range PCR, will enable users to target up to 480 kilobases of sequence per sample, or 23 megabases per array.
