Targeted DNA panels for any genome


• Customize with your genes
• As little as 1 ng of input DNA
• Design for any genome


• 12 to 6,144 amplicons per pool
• One to hundreds of genes
• 384 barcodes for multiplexing


• Just minutes to submit design
• Automated primer design in 2 hours
• Automated library preparation with 15 minutes hands-on time*

If the Ion AmpliSeq™ ready-to-use panels don't match your gene targets then simply select a subset of the targets or enter your specific genomic content online and we will design and create customized Ion AmpliSeq NGS panels just for you.

Creating and ordering custom gene panels is easy with the Ion AmpliSeq™ Designer—a free, online assay design tool that connects you directly to our assay design pipeline.  Panels can be designed against a number of preloaded genomes, or for any other organism by uploading your own FASTA file reference sequence.

*When used with the Ion Chef System.

Preloaded reference genomes available:

Custom panels are delivered in tubes of pre-pooled multiplexed primers in ready-to-use concentrations.  You can add 384-well plates to your order, in which each well contains individual primer pairs in concentrated format.  For custom panels with ≤96 primer pairs, you will receive 2,250 total reactions.  For custom panels with >96 primer pairs, you will receive 9,000 total reactions.
