Fluidigm Multiplexing Technology
The Fluidigm Access Array technology permits multiplexing samples across up to 48 different primer pairs to produce a sample and amplicon matrix that can then be deconvoluted back into individual sample-specific samples for analysis. This approach has been very useful for amplification of genomic regions corresponding to cancer-influencing genes or different regions of viral genomes to study polymorphisms.
A sample workflow of such an analysis can be found here.
The actual multiplexing access array chip looks like this:
