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

than 1,000 units were in research labs around the world.

"The Ion Proton™ System is the outcome of 40 years of accumulated Moore's law, starting with technologies that enabled the moon landing and that ultimately gave us modern electronics, computing and communications," said Ion Torrent CEO and Founder Jonathan M. Rothberg. "Now, for the first time, we are leveraging the trillion dollars that has gone into semiconductor development to 'see' chemistry and directly decode genomes."

Dr. Rothberg announced today at the Ion World 2012 customer conference that Life Technologies has developed Avalanche™, a revolutionary 30-minute emulsion-free template preparation chemistry that will work on all Ion platforms. Dr. Rothberg also announced that Avalanche™ will enable an Ion PIII™ Chip for the Proton, with more than 1.2 billion sensors that will take researchers beyond the $1,000 genome. Both innovations are possible because of the rapid pace of development afforded by Ion Torrent's invention of semiconductor sequencing technology.

A desktop server IT solution for genome-scale sequencing
Life Technologies has replaced the IT server room with a simple desktop server by moving primary analysis to the sequencer and using the most advanced technology from Intel®, Nvidia® and Altera® to enable the highest direct link between the biological and digital worlds.

"We are pleased that when Ion Torrent wanted the most advanced components to support the highest sequencing data throughput in the world, they turned to Intel technology and our team of engineers to help make the Ion Proton™ a success," said David Brown, Marketing Director, Enterprise Platform and Services Division (EPSD) for Intel. "We have enjoyed our collaboration over the last year to create one of the most advanced sequencing systems in the world."
