Life Technologies Announces an Automated Sample Preparation System for its Ion PGM™ Sequencer
Date:4/13/2011

CARLSBAD, Calif., April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced the Ion OneTouch System, an automated sample preparation system for the Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM) sequencer that eliminates complexity, reduces hands-on time to five minutes and offers walk-away convenience. Ion Torrent is accepting orders next week with an introductory price of under $5,000; the first shipments will be in late June and the Ion OneTouch System will be broadly available in the third quarter.

In December 2010, Ion PGM was launched, the world's first semiconductor sequencer and transformed sequencing by offering unprecedented simplicity, speed, scalability and affordability. Today, with the announcement of the Ion OneTouch System, Ion Torrent is pioneering the same kind of innovative change in template preparation.

"The Ion OneTouch System makes sample preparation simple, fast and affordable," said Ion Torrent Founder and President Jonathan Rothberg. "You just load your library and amplification master mix onto the Ion OneTouch and within three hours you're ready to sequence. This is a democratizing technology that brings DNA sequencing easily within the reach of any lab."

The Ion OneTouch System is three times faster than standard methods -- with only five minutes of hands-on time. The system combines sample loading, clonal amplification and sample recovery into a single, automated, hands-off process. The Ion OneTouch System is scalable and supports the Ion 314, 316 and 318 chips, delivering 10 Mb to 1 Gb of sequence. The running costs will be comparable to current Ion template preparation kits.'/>"/>
