Fluidigm EP1

SNP genotyping options for small to medium scale projects are now available with the recent acquisition to the Core of the Fluidigm EP1 System. This platform is an alternative to the Illumina BeadXpress/Golden Gate Assay genotyping platform. The EP1 System offers the most efficient sample/SNP genotyping throughput using end-point reading after PCR (check out the Fluidigm genotyping web page for more infomation on the technology). It allows for extremely low operating costs and provides the easiest workflow for low- to mid-multiplex SNP genotyping. More details on the Core service options will be posted here when available.
