The Ion 318™ Chip Kit v2 contains chips for sequencing runs using the Ion Personal Genome Machine® (PGM™) System, the first PostLight™ semiconductor-based sequencer. The Ion 318™ Chip 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 318™ Chip v2 provides:

• 600 Mb–2.0 Gb of sequence data with a rapid run time of only 4–7 hours

• Support for a variety of applications, including targeted gene sequencing and microbial sequencing with 4–5.5 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 318™ Chip (Cat.Nos.4466617 and 4469497).
