Life Technologies to Launch Ion 318 Chip in Second Half of 2011 with 1Gb of Data Output
Date:2/23/2011

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: LIFE) today announced that the Ion 318 semiconductor sequencing chip will be available for early access in September of this year, complete with RNA-Seq kits and analysis software, providing up to 1Gb of data output – 100 times more than the original Ion 314 chip introduced two months ago with the Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM™) sequencer.

"Ion Torrent has increased the number of accessible sensors on the Ion 318 chip to 11 million, from 1.2 million on the Ion 314 chip and 6.1 million on the Ion 316 chip," said Gregg Fergus, President of Ion Torrent.  "The Ion 318 is ideal for applications like transcriptome sequencing, miRNA sequencing and ChIP-Seq.  The Ion 318 requires no changes or upgrades to the Ion PGM sequencer – with Ion Torrent 'The Chip is the Machine,' so sequencing is easier and more economical than ever before."

ScalabilityInternally, Ion Torrent has already achieved read lengths in excess of 300bp and improvements in chemistry and loading are expected to increase chip utilization by five-fold.  By combining additional reads with longer read lengths, the company will achieve exceptional scalability on its Ion PGM sequencing platform and expects to reach read lengths of up to 400bp in 2012.

SimplicityAs with the Ion 314 and Ion 316 chips, the Ion 318 chip will use simple PostLight™ sequencing chemistry, which requires no modified nucleotides, fluorescence, chemiluminescence or enzymatic cascades.  As a result, Life Technologies will continue to deliver low-cost reag
