Fluidigm Europe BV is offering the BioMark IFC (integrated fluidic circuit) Controller MX, a self-contained system for automatically priming and loading 48.48 Dynamic Array and Digital Array IFCs one at a time. The compact system has an internal computer, touch screen control and an internal air source that can set up 2304 reactions within minutes. It is suitable for applications including gene expression, genotyping, and real-time and digital polymerase chain reaction experiments. After samples and assays have been pipetted into the inlets of the input frame, the chip is placed on the controller, and samples and assays are loaded into the IFCs. When setup is complete, the IFCs are placed on the system for thermal cycling and data collection. The system includes built-in software and a self-contained gas source for pressure-loading samples and assays into the chips.
