The Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine is a benchtop Next-Generation Sequencer that uses semiconductor technology to monitor the addition of nucleotides and therefore create sequence data. The PGM can perform 200 bp or 400 bp sequencing and offers three sizes of Ion Chips for different throughput needs.

Chips

Reads | 200 bp Output | 400 bp Output

Ion 314 v2

  • 400 – 550 thousand | 30 – 50 Mbp | 60 – 100 Mbp

Ion 316 v2

  • 2 – 3 million | 300 – 600 Mbp             600 | – 1000 Mbp

Ion 318 v2

  • 4 – 5.5 million | 600 – 1000 Mbp | 1.2 – 2 Gbp

The Ion Torrent is a great tool for lower throughput NGS needs as well as targeted sequencing, SNP verifications, microbial genomics, and many custom applications.
