WANTED: Used Roche GS FLX sequencer; ready to buy

Well, I have been looking around on the web for a bit and figured I should just post to my blog. We are in the market for a used Roche GS FLX sequencer. Anyone know of one for sale? We had planned to buy a new one but with the 3rd generation sequencers coming out soon it seems unwise to spend 500K on a new machine. But I like the current capabilities in the Roche GS FLX, as well as the apparently soon to be released ~1000 base pair reads. So we still would like to have the technology here at UC Davis. So if you know of one for sale, please let me know.


  1. Here you go. Ignore the "Property of JCVI" stickers. And that we had to meet here at midnight.
