New Torrent Suite Software Provides Highest Accuracy and 400 Base Pair Kits Deliver Broader Applications for Ion Semiconductor Sequencing
Date:9/6/2012

CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced another major advancement in the performance trajectory of its Ion AmpliSeq Technology. The new Torrent Suite Software v3.0 now consistently delivers 99.99+% consensus accuracy for both short and long homopolymer regions, and increases the frequency of correctly called insertions, deletions and homopolymer sequences by two-fold.

Read length on the Ion PGM™ also continues its unprecedented scalability with today's launch of the 400 base sequencing kits, which will provide a broader range of applications, such as bacterial identification, metagenomic analysis, Human Leukocyte Antigen sequencing, and better de novo assemblies.

"Ion's new long read kits combined with accuracy increases from Torrent Suite v3.0 have enabled us to significantly improve the performance of our bacterial and metagenomic sequencing as well as microbial genome assemblies," said Professor Dag Harmsen of the University of Muenster, Germany – a researcher at the epicenter of last year's pathogenic E coli outbreak. "The rapid generation of long accurate reads by the Ion PGM Sequencer will truly enable the new science of prospective genomic epidemiology."

AmpliSeq™ Technology Transforms Research

Six months after its introduction to the market, Ion AmpliSeq Technology has significantly transformed the way hypothesis-driven research is conducted. More than 700 customers have completed over 2,500 gene panel designs and high throughput laboratories have achieved annual run rates of over 1,000 runs per Ion PGM System.
