Project: ENCODE

So - libraries for next-generation sequencing used to all be made by hand. However, we are starting to see the emergence of platforms (machines) which do the library construction in an automated fashion. It would be useful to register these devices with OBI terms, similar to this
OBI: (only I would put these under the class hierarchy of: Measurement Device -> Automated Library Construction.

NTR: "C1 Fluidigm"

Editor preferred term: "C1 Fluidigm"

Alternative terms: C1 Fluidigm

Textual definition: The C1 system carefully isolates single cells into individual reaction chambers in the exclusive Fluidigm integrated fluidic circuit (IFC). The optically clear IFC lets you automatically stain captured cells and examine them by microscopy for viability, surface markers or reporter genes. After staining, cells are automatically lysed and template is quickly prepared for qPCR or sequencing analysis

Definition source for the textual definition:

Logical definition (or parent term):

Example of usage: The library was prepared using the C1 Fluidigm platform and sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq 2500.

Term editor: Carrie A Davis
