Fluidigm launches new website for biological researchers

Fluidigm has launched a new comprehensively featured website (www.fluidigm.com) designed to offer a wide variety of useful information to life science organisations involved with gene expression, single cell research, SNP genotyping, target resequencing, NGS sample preparation and determination of copy number variation.

Intuitively designed the website provides ready access to detailed technical information relating to Fluidigm's range of Integrated Fluidic Circuit (IFC) systems, chips, kits and assays. The visitor experience is further enriched through access to detailed information relating to the company's proprietary technologies, product video demonstrations, a large database of informative application notes, articles and posters, customer success stories and a 2011 program of events.

Easy access is provided on site to Fluidigm technical support group as well as listing contact details for local support outlets in North America, Asia and Europe. The site also provides a company overview that details the series of technological innovations overthe last decade that have made Fluidigm a technological leader in life science research.

Fluidigm develops, manufactures and markets proprietary Integrated Fluidic Circuit (IFC) systems that significantly improve productivity in life science research. Fluidigm IFCs enable the simultaneous performance of thousands of sophisticated biochemical measurements in extremely minute volumes. These "integrated circuits for biology" are made possible by miniaturizing and integrating liquid handling components on a single microfluidic device. Fluidigm systems, consisting of instrumentation, software and chips, increase throughput, decrease costs and enhance sensitivity compared to conventional laboratory systems.
