Next-generation sequencing technologies

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Powered by Ion Torrent™ semiconductor-chip technology, the Personal Genome Machine™ (PGM™) Sequencer offers the fastest run times, at the most affordable price, of any next-generation sequencer.

The Ion Chef™ System§ is the next generation of workflow simplification products for the Ion Proton™ and Ion PGM™ systems. With typically less than 15 minutes of hands-on time, an intuitive touch-screen interface, and significantly higher productivity than the Ion OneTouch™ 2 System, the Ion Chef™ System will make the Ion Torrent™ sequencing workflow even more accessible for every lab.

Ready-to-use Ion AmpliSeq™ Panels provide extensive gene coverage and are used with the Ion PGM™ Sequencer, the fastest and most affordable benchtop sequencing solution.

Assay development

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Combining flexible throughput capabilities with a streamlined workflow, the QuantStudio™ 12K Flex System takes you from targeted discovery through confirmation and screening, all on a single platform.

The QuantStudio™ 3D Digital PCR System uses a sealed chip technology, providing a streamlined, reliable, and robust method to perform digital PCR.

TaqMan® Mutation Detection Assays are our most up-to-date technology for detecting cancer-associated sequence variations in research samples.

Diagnostic platforms

For In Vitro Diagnostic Use.

The QuantStudio™ Dx Real-Time PCR Instrument offers performance your clinical laboratory can rely on in IVD mode using the Fast 96-well block and the Quidel® Molecular Direct C. difficile, influenza A+B, and RSV + hMPV assays. The QuantStudio™ Dx instrument also provides the flexibility your lab needs to grow when running in Test Development mode using the 96-well, 384-well, and TaqMan® Array Card block options.

The 3500 Dx Genetic Analyzer CS2 provides laboratories with reliable, versatile, and innovative tools for molecular diagnostic testing. Based on Sanger sequencing, one of the most widely used and trusted sequencing methodologies available, the 3500 Dx Genetic Analyzer CS2 can be operated in either IVD mode (for diagnostic HLA typing using SeCore® HLA typing kits (hyperlink) or RUO mode (to develop other applications).

The Veriti™ Dx Thermal Cycler is classified as a Class I Medical Device in the US. It conforms to In Vitro Diagnostic Directive (IVDD) (98/79/EC) requirements and is CE IVD–labeled in Europe. The instrument is manufactured to ISO 13485 and GMP requirements.

The Quidel® molecular pathogen real-time PCR kits for C. difficile, influenza A+B, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and human metapneumovirus (hMPV) are fast and accurate and will help simplify your workflow. These diagnostic kits can be run on the QuantStudio™ Dx Real-Time PCR System and 7500 Fast Dx Real-Time PCR Instrument.

Quality control and validation

For In Vitro Diagnostic Use.

AcroMetrix® in vitro diagnostic quality controls assist laboratories with diagnostic assay validations, verifications, operator training, and daily external quality control.

Online tools

The EZQC™ Online Tool helps provide laboratories with quality-control management tools that guide testing from assay implementation to monitoring assay performance.
