Ion Torrent Selected as World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer
Date:9/1/2010

GUILFORD, Conn., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Ion Torrent, the semiconductor sequencing company, today announced that it has been selected as one of 31 World Economic Forum Technology Pioneers for 2011. The winning companies were chosen from a field of 330 startups and judged on the impact their innovations are expected to have on the future of business and society.

Dr. Jonathan M. Rothberg, Ion Torrent's founder, chairman and CEO, was selected to represent the company at Davos in 2011. He is the first person ever to be chosen three times as a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer.

"We're honored to be recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer," Dr. Rothberg said. "Ion Torrent has developed an entirely new way to sequence DNA that directly translates chemical signals into digital information on a semiconductor chip. Just as the microprocessor made desktop computing ubiquitous, Ion Torrent's semiconductor technology is making sequencing accessible to every lab and clinic."

Until now, scientists have had to use light to translate chemical signals (e.g. the DNA bases A,C,G,T) into digital information (0,1). That required complex optics, like lasers and scanners, which made sequencing a slow and expensive process that only the largest labs could afford. Ion Torrent's breakthrough PostLight™ sequencing technology replaces all those components with a proprietary semiconductor chip made in standard semiconductor fabs. The Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM™) sequencer is one tenth the price of other sequencers to buy and to run, and instead of taking a week to sequence DNA, it takes an hour or two. The Ion Torrent sequencing platform is simpler, faster, less expensive, and more scalable than any other technology available.

This year's World Economic Forum Technology Pioneers were chosen by 68 global tech
