Additional Information
The HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Plus System is a semiconductor-based next-generation sequencing (NGS) system that enables simple targeted sequencing workflows for forensic analysis. From targeted SNP panels to Precision ID STR workflows and mitochonidrial DNA sequencing, the HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Plus System is designed to enable flexibility to help labs manage small and large projects across multiple applications. With cartridge-based reagents, the system is simple to use and offers scalability and flexibility. It uses Ion 5 Series chips to support a broad range of high-throughput sequencing for forensic applications.

Features of the HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Plus System include:
• Select the chip (Ion 510–550 chip) that fits your application and throughput needs to achieve from 2–130 million reads per run
• Reduce setup time and complexity with cartridge-based plug-and-play reagents
• Complete run and analysis in hours and move forward with your experiments

The Ion GeneStudio S5 Series
The HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Series sequencers share the same foundational technology and fluidic architecture across all three instruments: the HID Ion GeneStudio S5 System, this HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Plus System, and the HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Prime System. The primary difference across the three instruments is on-sequencer analysis time.

The HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Series sequencers leverage the speed of semiconductor sequencing to enable the production of high-quality sequencing data in a few hours and enable 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 HID Ion Chef System.

With single-day installation, a straightforward user interface, and cartridge-based reagents, the HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Series sequencers are easy to use. Combined with Precision ID library prep technology for target selection, the HID Ion Chef System for automated library and template preparation, and Converge Software for automated analysis, forensic sequencing is simpler than ever.

Small sample input
Low input DNA amounts from challenging sample types such as touch DNA or other forensic samples can be difficult to sequence on competitor next-generation sequencers. However, with Precision ID library preparation and sequencing technology and the HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Series sequencers, you can use as little as 100 pg of DNA input and achieve accurate, robust results.

Why buy multiple systems for your lab when you can modulate your throughput by chip selection on a single next-generation sequencer? The Ion 5 Series chips that run on the HID Ion GeneStudio S5 Series systems provide several throughput options, so your lab has the flexibility to scale from small to large projects, enabling multiple forensic applications on a single system.

Simple analysis and storage solutions
Torrent Suite Software and Converge Software make NGS easy for beginners and experts alike. Plan, monitor, track, and analyze your runs using Torrent Suite Software (pre-installed on the Torrent Server). Integrate, annotate, and interpret variants using Converge Software (Thermo Fisher Cloud or local options available based on your needs).
