The Ion Torrent Genexus System is a two-instrument next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform that automates the main steps in the NGS workflow, including sample purification and quantification, library preparation, sequencing, bioinformatics analysis, and reporting.
The Genexus Purification System and Genexus Integrated Sequencer work together seamlessly with Genexus software, tracking sample information and results automatically through the process. This automated system reduces manual steps and facilitates quality data and quick reports, making in-house NGS testing accessible to more researchers regardless of experience and without the requirement to hire or train additional staff.
The Genexus System makes the NGS workflow fast and easy with walkaway automation, so laboratories of all experience levels are able to access the benefits of in-house NGS. These advancements to the NGS workflow provide a new level of operational efficiency by reducing hands-on time and staff required for NGS testing, freeing up valuable time to focus on other priorities or to scale up the testing done in the lab.
The Genexus System NGS platform also increases reproducibility of NGS assays and provides long-term cost savings due to decreased labor requirements and combined service and support options by using multiple instruments from the same trusted partner.
The Genexus System consists of two integrated instruments linked by a single intuitive Genexus software for simplified sample input, run plan setup, data analysis, and report generation.
In the first step of this automated NGS workflow, the Genexus Purification System quickly extracts and quantifies nucleic acids with hands-free walkaway automation, eliminating manual pipetting steps from sample preparation. Next, the Genexus Integrated Sequencer automates library prep, templating, sequencing, data analysis and reporting, delivering the only true end-to-end automated NGS workflow specifically optimized to work together from a single company.
The automated Genexus System workflow minimizes hands-on time to deliver NGS test results quickly and easily, making rapid in-house NGS assays accessible to more laboratories without the requirement for previous NGS experience or extensive training.
With just two manual touchpoints, one for setting up the automated sample purification run on the Genexus Purification System and the other for setting up automated library preparation, sequencing, analysis, and reporting on the Genexus Integrated Sequencer, and a total of 20 minutes of hands-on time for the entire workflow, NGS has become almost as accessible as assays like PCR or IHC.
The Genexus System is used by clinical researchers and laboratory technicians to complete NGS tests. Our Ion AmpliSeq assays are sensitive and easy to implement for laboratory use. Assays come with primer pools and many assays come with bioinformatics and reporting mechanisms.
