Fluidigm Introduces Four New Integrated Fluidic Circuits For Production Genomics

Fluidigm Corporation (NASDAQ:FLDM) today introduced four new integrated fluidic circuits (IFCs) designed to meet the challenges associated with production genomics. These new offerings are expected to make substantial contributions to laboratories performing high sample throughput digital PCR, genotyping, and targeted panel testing.

“Today, we unveil four innovative devices, each responding to unmet needs in production genomics. To deliver ultra-low cost per sample and exquisite accuracy in digital PCR, we introduce the qdPCR™ 37K IFC. To minimize sample re-work and ambiguous results in high-throughput genotyping, we now offer the High-Precision 96.96 Genotyping IFC. To enable high sample throughput for gene expression applications, we announce the 192.24 Gene Expression IFC. Finally, in response to many requests for greater sample and assay flexibility during target selection, we present the FLEXsix™ Gene Expression IFC, first of a family of flexible, configurable IFCs,” said Gajus Worthington, Fluidigm President and Chief Executive Officer.

With these new IFCs, the BioMark™ HD system now supports the entire span of activity from target selection through production scale-up, eliminating the need for technology-bridging studies.

The Fluidigm qdPCR 37K IFC

The qdPCR 37K IFC combines both digital and quantitative real-time PCR. Real-time analysis of digital PCR reactions minimizes false positives. The qdPCR 37K IFC also provides high amplification success rate with the lowest cost-per-sample available in the market today, as low as $2 per sample.

Droplet and spotted-array based digital methods often experience high “drop-out” rates that can adversely impact their ability to detect target sequences. The qdPCR 37K IFC performs at a 99.9% success rate, providing ultra-high precision and throughput without the concern of false positives. This is especially critical in high-sensitivity applications, such as rare mutation detection, GMO testing, and aneuploidy detection.

With the qdPCR 37K IFC, researchers can enjoy a nearly 80% savings per sample when their applications require four-plex tests per sample. Other products on the market only provide a two-plex solution, meaning each sample would have to be run multiple times, adding cost and decreasing throughput.
