I'm out of 'lurker' mode today :)
We are doing more and more NGS here in the lab, mostly 454 for now. I am evaluating Fluidigm Corporation's product, namely Access Array (product page), for use in 454 library preparation. The product seems fine and, having been implicated in the manual tagging (MID) and library preparation for two projects, I can see how it would be a powerful approach.
So, I wanted to have your opinion about this product (preferably) or other competing products/companies that offer similar possibilities (Sample Capture and Target Enrichment, Sample Bar-coding for Multiplexed Sequencing, Sequencing Library Preparation Using Amplicon Tagging). Any experience with either the company or the product?
