The Ion 316™ Chip Kit v2 contains chips for 8 sequencing runs using the Personal Genome Machine™ System, the first PostLight™ semiconductor-based sequencer. The Ion 316™ Chip Kit v2 detects polymerase-driven base incorporation and translates this information into digital form. By eliminating the use of light-producing chemistry and optical systems, this revolutionary advance in next-generation sequencing technology makes massively parallel sequencing affordable for nearly every lab.

The Ion 316™ Chip v2 provides:

• 300 Mb–1.0 Gb of sequence data with a rapid run time of only 3–5 hours

• Support for a variety of applications, including targeted gene sequencing and microbial sequencing with 2–3 million reads per run

• Easy handling and loading of templated Ion Sphere™ Particles

• Compatibility with all current library preparation methods

Note: This product replaces the Ion 316™ Chip Kit (Cat.Nos.4466616 and 4469496).
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
