Ion Torrent Ships New RNA Sequencing Application as Fast, Easy, Affordable Alternative to Microarrays
Date:5/31/2011

CARLSBAD, Calif., May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced it is now shipping the Ion Total RNA-Seq Kit for the Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM™) sequencer, a solution that provides a fast, affordable, easy-to-use alternative to microarrays for transcript expression analysis. The Ion PGM sequencer puts RNA-Seq within the reach of any lab, enabling scientists to get far more accurate and comprehensive data than microarrays can provide for a comparable price.

RNA-Seq has always been the preferred method for studying gene expression because it provides the most complete information, such as transcript quantitation and the detection of novel transcripts and mutations. However, the cost and complexity of high-throughput next-generation sequencing technology has kept most researchers from adopting it. 

"It's been clear for years that there's a huge disconnect between the view of the transcriptome that we see from microarrays and the output of individual biological states that we get with sequencing," said Dr. Sean Grimmond, the Director of the Queensland Centre for Medical Genomics. "While RNA-Seq offers fantastic sensitivity and discrimination, cost and speed have been holding it back. Those are two areas where Ion Torrent technology excels, so this will be a very compelling application."

The Ion RNA-Seq is making RNA sequencing accessible to every scientist in world, with a fast, simple, solution that any lab can buy and use:
