Ion AmpliSeq panel types

Specialty panels for different applications and disease areas powered by Ion AmpliSeq target selection technology

Cancer research

Targeted sequencing assays for oncology research are paired with easy-to-interpret informatics workflows that leverage information from the extensive Oncomine™ Knowledgebase. These panels include content for DNA and RNA, FFPE, and liquid biopsy samples.
