Life Technologies Begins Shipping Ion Proton System
Date:9/13/2012

Ion Chef™ System is ideal for labs with any level of molecular biology expertise, or for labs with high-throughput requirements. It automates the upfront sequencing workflow, going from library to "loaded chips" with just minutes of hands-on time, and is scheduled to ship in the first half of next year.

Semiconductor technology enables sequencing for all budgets, in all labs
The Ion Proton™ System is one-third the cost of light-based genome-scale sequencing systems, saving researchers hundreds of thousands of dollars. Additionally, at just $1,000 per run, scientists can afford to follow a one-off idea or invest in a major study. Using the Ion PI™ Chip, available today, the system can sequence exomes and transcriptomes in just two to four hours. Initially the system will deliver 60-80 million filtered reads and up to 10 Gb of output, with potential for higher performance. Read-lengths are 100 to 200 bp and the consensus accuracy is comparable to that of the Ion PGM™ sequencer. 

Life Technologies plans to ship more than 100 Ion Proton™ Systems to customers in September and continues to take additional orders and experience strong customer demand for the platform.

The Ion PII™ Chip is designed to sequence the human genome in just a few hours for $1,000, and is expected to ship approximately 6 months following today's Ion Proton System launch. The Ion Proton instrument, chemistry and chip architecture are designed to accommodate the higher well density of the Ion PII™. Historically, each time the well diameter of Ion chips is reduced by half, the signal has quadrupled.

The Ion Proton™ System's technology builds on the rapid advances in increasing throughput, accuracy and read-length made by the Ion Personal Genome Machine® (PGM™) Sequencer. The Ion PGM™ became the fastest-selling sequencer in the world in just six months, and by the end of the first half of 2012 more
