Ion Torrent Gets Better Faster With 4th Qtr New Product Releases
Date:10/12/2011

CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced eight innovative new research products, including the Ion Sequencing 200 Kit, which enables 200 base pair reads. The Ion Personal Genome Machine™ sequencer is now the only next-generation sequencer that can deliver millions of highly accurate long reads in a single day.

"Nine months after our launch, the speed, simplicity and scalability of the Ion PGM™ platform continues to improve at an unprecedented rate, driving new application development," said Ion Torrent Founder and CEO Dr. Jonathan Rothberg. "We're getting better faster as the Ion Community, a network of more than 3,000 scientists that is growing by 100 people a week, develops new applications using our open protocols, datasets and source code."

This quarter eight new product launches bring additional speed, scalability and simplicity to the Ion platform.

Speed

Ion Xpress™ Plus Fragment Library Kit: This improved version of Ion Torrent's enzymatic shearing kit reduces library preparation time to just 2 hours, reducing the total workflow, from DNA to sequence, to just eight hours.

Torrent Suite 1.5: New algorithm developments have significantly improved both output and accuracy of sequencing. Total Q20 base output increases by over 100 percent and the number of perfect 100 base pair reads increases by over 200 percent. Base-calling accuracy has also improved, while reducing analysis time to just 30 minutes on the Ion 314™ chip and to one hour on the Ion 316™ chip.

Simplicity
