How many Archer® samples can be multiplexed together?

The level of multiplexing depends on the number of targets and the number of reads generated by the instrument per run. This will vary for each catalog panel as well as custom panels. Custom fusion detection assays will need to be optimized to balance the number of reads needed against the level of multiplexing.
