it's good to see a reply from Nimblegen here.
I tried repeatedly to get info from Tech Services regarding our arrays
and I got absolute silence for response.
A colleague of mine had a similar experience, but she kept insisting
and eventually she was given the email of Michael Hogan, who was very
good, it must be said.
Commenting these issues with other people in Holland I found I wasn't
the only one feeling Nimblegen's support is "patchy". Eventually you
can get through to somebody who will be helpful, but you have to insist.
So, my question is... can you suggest what's the best way to contact
Nimblegen (either Support or Tech Services) and get an answer?
Emailing through the forms on the website led me nowhere in the past.
