Description

The Ion Reporter Server hosts a locally deployed instance of Ion Reporter Software, combining an optimized suite of simple data analysis tools with the control and access of a powerful computer server in your own building. Ion Reporter Software supports the analysis of data from Ion Torrent next-generation sequencing (NGS) systems, covering a growing number of research applications, from human variant detection to microbial diversity.

The Ion informatics workflow ensures high quality data, prioritizes and annotates driver variants, and completes with a report to simplify your bioinformatics path to discovery by enabling you to focus on finding the biological meaning of your data.

Automated workflows for efficiency
Ion Reporter Software supports preconfigured workflows for many research applications, including cancer, inherited disease, reproductive health, and infectious disease research.

The Ion Reporter Server is built to automate the workflow from sample to report. When a sequencing run is initiated on an Ion Torrent sequencer, an Ion Reporter workflow can be selected as part of the sequencing run plan so that the data transfer and analysis are automated from run initiation to review of annotated variants. This helps save time and allows you to get answers faster with streamlined, automated data transfer and analysis. Further integrate Ion Reporter Software within your research lab environment with the provided APIs, including those for automated data extraction.

Benefits of the Ion Reporter Server
• Located in your secure laboratory environment
• Configured specifically to handle the advanced analysis and annotation of Ion Reporter workflows
• Service, support, and software for one year

Bioinformatics designed for accuracy
Managing, and ultimately interpreting, the significant quantities of variant data produced by NGS presents a formidable challenge. The Ion Reporter informatics workflow helps ensure you get high quality data by prioritizing and annotating driver variants. It completes with a report that simplifies your bioinformatics path to discovery by enabling you to focus on finding the biological meaning of your data.

For example, for tumor mutational burden (TMB), a custom variant calling and germline variant filtering algorithm is used to accurately estimate somatic variants in the cancer research sample. Detection of SNPs, indels, CNVs, gene fusions, and aneuploidies in a single automated workflow is enabled by using our custom germline and somatic algorithms. Consistency across versions of the software is established by verifying each release with a mix of control and clinical research samples, measuring relevant variants that have been previously detected with another technology. These workflows can be used to analyze a variety of research samples, such as single samples, paired tumor/normal samples, and family trios. Workflows are flexible to enable custom optimization and can also be locked to enable controlled use without depending on the advanced skills of a bioinformatician.

Benefits of the Ion Reporter Software
• Automated workflows with read mapping, variant calling, and full annotation from >25 public and proprietary databases
• Flexibility of preconfigured and customizable workflows that have been tested for accuracy and consistency
• Controlled access with role-based logins, locked workflows, and audit logs to help maintain a traceable and secure environment
