Hi, Christian.

The short answer is, "No".  In fact, there is no way to map the
Sentrix ID to array type directly without going through beadstudio, as
far as I know.  Last I checked, Illumina were not going to make the
details of their files available to be able to do so.  If anyone knows
otherwise, I would love to hear.
