Affordable sequencing for all
The Ion Proton System has been designed with affordability in mind. The system combines semiconductor sequencing technology with biochemistry to directly translate chemical information into digital data. This eliminates the need for expensive optics and complex sequencing chemistries, resulting in a sequencing system that is highly-affordable to own and operate.
Fast, simple workflows
The Ion Proton System offers a complete workflow from sample through analysis, and variant calling or RNA analysis. It may be used with the Ion Chef System to enable automated, high-throughput template preparation and reproducible chip loading. See Proton configurations for more details. Built for speed, the Ion Proton System provides fast sequencing run times, taking you from DNA to variants in a single day. It is equipped with Ion Reporter Software, providing integrated tools for tertiary data analysis for DNA variation analysis across single, paired, or trio research samples.
