The Ion PI Chip Kit v3 contains 8 barcoded chips for sample tracking and sequencing with the Ion Proton System. The Ion PI Chip electronically detects polymerase-driven base incorporation without the use of fluorescence. By eliminating the use of an optical detection system, this revolutionary advance in next-generation sequencing technology allows for rapid sequencing times of less than 4 hours. The Ion PI Chip v3 enables a simplified sequencing workflow with the removal of chip preparation steps, reducing the hands-on time by approximately 45 minutes compared to previous versions.
The Ion PI Chip Kit v3 offers: • A simplified workflow, reducing hands-on time by approximately 45 minutes • Barcoded sequencing chip with sample tracking functionality • 10 Gb of sequence data with a rapid run time of typically only 2-4 hours • Support for a variety of applications, including sequencing of up to three human exomes, transcriptome profiling with 60-80 million reads, and targeted resequencing of gene panels
