Ion AmpliSeq™ Cancer Panel: This novel product enables scientists to screen research samples for hundreds of cancer mutations in a single day, compared to weeks required with current technologies. The single-tube assay, which is shipping this week, is as simple to perform as PCR: simply add 10 ng of FFPE extracted DNA to one tube containing up to 480 primer pairs, perform PCR followed by Ion OneTouch™ template prep and then sequence using the Ion PGM™ sequencer. For more information on Ion AmpliSeq™ Custom Panels, which target regions up to 100 kb, go to Ion Community.
Ion Semiconductor Sequencing Chips
The Ion PGM™ sequencer was launched nine months ago with a 10 Mb output on the Ion 314™ chip. A 127 Mb dataset was recently released on the same chip, demonstrating greater than 10x scaling over nine months. We have also released a 1 Gb dataset on the new Ion 318™ chip, demonstrating 100x scaling of the platform in under a year. Datasets are available for download on the Ion Community. We expect the Ion 318™ chip to be shipping commercially by the end of 2011.
