Ion torrent


Previous sequencing technologies have relied upon optical systems as bridges between the chemical and digital forms of sequence information. These systems have added tremendous costs to sequencers, relegating them to only the largest laboratories. By eliminating the need for the optical system, the Ion Torrent system provides sequencing that is simpler, faster, more cost effective, and more scalable than any other technology available. With a small benchtop footprint and weight of ~30kg, low cost sequencing reagents, and a simple touchscreen user interface, the system brings next generation sequencing to nearly every lab.
