Access Array™ Target-Specific Primers
|Key Application: Targeted Resequencing
new Access Array Target-Specific Primers, when used with the Fluidigm
Access Array System, allow fast, simple, and inexpensive preparation of
up to 480 amplicons per sample at a time.* This capability is ideal for
analysis of large sample sets across focused genomic regions to better
understand human genetic variation. The primers allow you to quickly and
specifically amplify the target of interest, incorporate
sample-specific barcodes, and add sequencer-specific adaptors—all at the
same time. This bypasses traditional library preparation altogether.
the new Access Array Target-Specific Primers, you can increase the
number of amplicons per sample by 10X compared to our traditional
solution. In conjunction with our Access Array Barcode Library for
Illumina sequencers, up to 384 unique samples can be multiplexed per
sequencing run. This helps capture the maximum output of your sequencers
and provides the broadest coverage possible for your human genetic
In addition, using the Access Array Barcode
Libraries developed for the Illumina, Roche, and Ion Torrent sequencers
allows researchers to test the same amplicon pools and to cross-validate
sequencing results across different NGS platforms.
- Study only your regions of interest—custom-designed primer sets
- Increase throughput and scalability—multiplex capability allows up to 480 amplicons per sample
- Save time and cost—amplicon tagging bypasses traditional library preparation
*Target multiplex option is currently available for Illumina sequencers only.
