Affordable sequencing for all
The Ion Proton System has been designed with affordability in mind. The system combines semiconductor sequencing technology with biochemistry to directly translate chemical information into digital data. This eliminates the need for expensive optics and complex sequencing chemistries, resulting in a sequencing system that is highly-affordable to own and operate.
Scalable, flexible throughput
Chip-based semiconductor sequencing enables you to scale your runs to your research needs. The Ion PI™ Chip provides you with 40–80 M reads, enabling you to sequence 1–3 human exomes or 1–8 human transcriptomes per run.
Fast, simple workflows
The Ion Proton System offers a complete workflow from sample through analysis, and variant calling or RNA analysis. It is used with the Ion Chef System* to enable automated, high-throughput template preparation and reproducible chip loading for users of any experience level. Built for speed, the Ion Proton System provides sequencing run times from 2–4 hours on the Ion PI Chip, taking you from DNA to variants in a single day. It is equipped with Ion Reporter Software, providing integrated tools for tertiary data analysis for DNA variation analysis across single, paired, or trio research samples.
