The Ion 520™ Chip Kit-4 Reactions contains 4 barcoded chips for sample tracking and sequencing of 400-600 bp fragments, for use with the Ion 520™ & Ion 530™ ExT Kit-Chef and the Ion S5™ and Ion S5™ XL Sequencing Systems. The Ion 520 Chip electronically detects polymerase-driven base incorporation without the use of fluorescence. By eliminating the use of an optical detection system, this advance in next-generation sequencing technology allows for rapid sequencing times of as little as 4.5 hours for 600 bp sequencing.
The Ion 520 Chip Kit-4 Reactions offers: • Sample tracking functionality from an integrated barcode • A rapid sequencing run time of as little as 4.5 hours, generating 3–4 million reads • Read lengths of 400-600 bp to support a variety of research applications, including microbial sequencing and metagenomics • Automated handling and loading of templated products for sequencing • Compatibility with current library preparation methods
Notes: This kit is only compatible with the Ion S5 and Ion S5 XL Systems. Use this kit with the Ion 520 & Ion 530 ExT Kit-Chef and Torrent Suite™ Software 5.2.1 or higher.
