NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Solexa today said that it has shipped the Solexa Genome Analysis System to two of its early-access partners, marking the first official placements of the instrument.
Solexa said that it shipped instruments in the second quarter to the Genome Sequencing Center at the Washington University School of Medicine and the Broad Institute.
The shipments are the first in a series of anticipated placements as part of Solexa's early-access program, which is expected to continue through summer 2006.
The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is another partner in the early-access program, but it was not immediately whether they have a Solexa system in house.
Financial details were not disclosed.
