Food & Beverage

Identify meat, fish or plant species present in all food types using the Ion Genestudio™ S5 Food Protection System - a semiconductor-based next-generation sequencing (NGS) system which, when used as part of the Thermo Scientific™ Next Generation Sequencing Food Authenticity Workflow allows identification of the species present in even the most challenging sample types.

The Ion GeneStudio S5 Food Protection System is optimized to provide flexibility and affordability for laboratories who have a food application focus and comes with a laptop suitable for use with the SGS™ All Species ID Software.

Identification of the species present in food and feed samples is a critical step for proof of authenticity, verification of origin, traceability of raw materials, and quality control of handling and cleaning processes in food production lines.

The Thermo Scientific NGS Food Authenticity Workflow utilizes Ion Torrent™ Next Generation Sequencing technology to enable an untargeted screening approach making it possible to identify the species contained in a food sample by comparison with a DNA database of meat, plant or fish species.

The Ion GeneStudio S5 Food Protection System is an integral component of the workflow. With cartridge-based reagents, the system is simple to use and offers scalability and flexibility.

Key features:

  • Reduced hands-on time and complexity: cartridge-based plug-and-play reagents
  • Rapid data: complete sequencing run and analysis in hours
  • Flexible throughput: select the chip appropriate to your throughput requirements (Ion 510 or 520 Food Protection Chip Kit)

The Ion GeneStudio S5 Food Protection System leverages the speed of semiconductor sequencing to enable the production of high-quality sequencing data in a few hours and enables you to go from DNA library to data in as little as 24 hours with only 45 minutes of total hands-on time when paired with the Ion Chef Food Protection Instrument.

With single-day installation, a straightforward user interface, and cartridge-based reagents, the Ion GeneStudio S5 Food Protection System is simple and easy to use.
