What are Access Array Target-Specific Primers?
Access Array Target-Specific Primers are designed by the Fluidigm Assay Design Group for targeted amplicon sequencing using next-generation sequencing platforms. Fluidigm uses a proprietary algorithm developed and optimized to design primer pairs permitting specific amplification of genomic regions of interest. PCR-based enrichment enables fast and easy sequencing incorporation of barcodes and adapters, which allows for analysis of large sample sets across focused genomic regions.
Multiplexing of up to 480 unique amplicons per sample is currently supported for 454™, Ion Torrent™ and Illumina® sequencers. For more information, see Access Array Multiplex Target-Specific Primers (PN ASY-AAX).
