Ion S5™ System (Ion Torrent™)

The Ion S5™ next-generation sequencing system enables a simple targeted sequencing workflow for your lab at an affordable price, without compromising on performance or reliability. The Ion S5 System leverages the speed of semiconductor sequencing with impressive on-board computing power, to enable the production of high quality sequencing data in as little as 2.5 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 on the Ion Chef™ System and the Ion S5 System. The Ion S5 System is simple to use with cartridge-based reagents and offers superior scalability and flexibility to support a broad range of high throughput sequencing applications, from microbial genomes and gene panels to exomes and transcriptomes, using our 5 Series chips.

Speed
Some research decisions can’t wait. A few hours could make all the difference in your quest for the right answer.With other light-based sequencers you could wait almost 60 hours for results. With the Ion S5 System you get results in as little as 24 hours (with a 2.5-4 hour sequencer run time and overnight Ion Chef System run).

Simplicity
With single-day installation, a straightforward user interface, and cartridge-loaded reagents, the Ion S5 System is easy to use. Beyond this, the system is part of a workflow that allows you to go from DNA to data with only 45 minutes of total hands-on time on the Ion Chef System and the Ion S5 System, significantly less than other targeted sequencing solutions that require as much as 2.5 hours of hands-on time. Combined with Ion AmpliSeq™ technology for target selection, the Ion Chef™ System for automated library and template preparation, and Ion Reporter™ Software for automated variant annotation, targeted sequencing becomes simpler than ever.

Small sample input
Low input DNA for challenging samples types, such as formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue, retrospective samples from fine needle aspirates, and cell-free DNA extracted from blood (cfDNA) can be difficult to sequence on competititor next-generation sequencers. However, with Ion AmpliSeq technology and the Ion S5 Sequencer, you can use as little as 10 ng input DNA or RNA.

Scalability
Why buy multiple systems for your lab when you can run all of your targeted sequencing or microbial applications on a single next-generation sequencer? The Ion S5 System has a modular build, so your lab has the flexibility to do multiple targeted sequencing applications on a single system.

Simple analysis and storage solutions
Whether you are new to next-generation sequencing or an expert user, Torrent Suite™ Software and Ion Reporter™ Software make it easy for you to get started with next-generation sequencing. Plan, monitor, track, and analyze your runs using Torrent Suite Software (pre-installed on the Torrent Server). Integrate, annotate, and interpret variants using Ion Reporter Software (Cloud or local options available based on your needs).

Multidisciplinary translational research programs often require processing of multiple samples across multiple applications like whole exome, RNA-seq, and structural variation. The 5500xl Genetic Analyzer provides you the flexibility to configure your sequencing runs to your project and throughput needs (Figure 3). The system’s two configurable microfluidic FlowChips process up to 12 independent samples and the intelligent barcoding kits multiplex up to hundreds of samples in a single run. Pay-Per-Lane Sequencing (PPL-Seq™) and independent run lanes tailor the system to any project scale. With the 5500xl Genetic Analyzer, avoid project delays by optimizing your run configurations to attain the lowest cost per sample.

When the Utmost Productivity and Efficiency are Essential
Ease of use, quality control, and speed are integral components of any next-generation sequencing workflow. Co-developed with Hitachi-Hi Technologies, the 5500xl Genetic Analyzer's elegant tabletop design (Figure 1) is built off “Six-Sigma" processes to streamline your research.
