Ion PGM Dx System
Prevail with next-generation sequencing in your molecular diagnostics laboratory
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is an indispensable tool enabling the simultaneous interrogation of hundreds of genes and biomarkers to generate accurate and affordable genetic information.
The Ion PGM Dx System brings you the speed and simplicity of an NGS platform, combined with key workflow advantages designed for regulated laboratory environments and in vitro diagnostic (IVD) applications in addition to assay development for clinical research applications.
Now with combined-functions software* to enable maximum utility for clinical research
A complete IVD workflow
for next-generation sequencing
Provides a complete NGS system of instruments, consumables, reagents, and software, developed under design control for targeted sequencing of human genomic DNA (gDNA) derived from peripheral whole blood and DNA and RNA extracted from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples.
Enables improved lab productivity with software auditing and traceability compliance
Enables role-based workflows, sample and reagent tracking, QC metrics, and audit trails.
For In Vitro Diagnostic Use. Available in the US and selected countries globally.
* Torrent Suite Assay Development Software is For Research Use Only, and not for use in diagnostic procedures.
The Ion PGM Dx Instrument System is composed of a sequencing instrument that measures the hydrogen ions generated during the incorporation of nucleotides in the DNA sequencing reaction and the ancillary instrumentation necessary for sample processing. This instrument system is used in conjunction with the instrument-specific Ion PGM Dx Library Kit, Ion OneTouch Dx Template Kit, Ion PGM Dx Sequencing Kit, and Ion 318 Dx Chip Kit, and data analysis software. The Ion PGM Dx Instrument System is intended for targeted sequencing of human genomic DNA (gDNA) derived from peripheral whole-blood and DNA and RNA extracted from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples. The Ion PGM Dx Instrument System is not intended for whole genome or de novo sequencing.
