SampleSorcerers help advance cancer research with the ability to finally get meaningful results from archived and degraded samples.
Bioinfomagicians analyze NGS data so much easier by helping to find the biological meaning of variants quicker than ever with pushbutton workflows.
Next-generation sequencing is easier for SeqWizards who are enabled to get more information, more cost-effectively, using simple streamlined workflows.
The power to design and run gene research panels quickly and simply enables GeneGenies to get to the variants that matter faster.



I'm a SampleSorcerer

Thanks to Ion Torrent™ next-generation sequencing solutions, I can do plenty of amazing things.

Like get human gene expression research data for more than 20,000 genes simultaneously using just 10 ng of FFPE RNA, and use straightforward analysis tools to go from sample to gene quantitation in under 2 days.

Stories from SampleSorcerers

  • See how Dr. Milan Radovich uses RNA and DNA sequencing on the Ion Proton™ Sequencer for translational oncology research.
  • Listen to Dr. Ian Cree describe his groundbreaking lung and colon cancer research using Ion AmpliSeq™ technology with only 10 ng of DNA.
  • Hear how Dr. Nicola Normanno is using Ion AmpliSeq™ technology to develop a single-tube assay that covers over 500 COSMIC mutations.

The Ion Proton™ System helps reduce the high cost and complexity of high-throughput sequencing, and offering it to your lab, on your budget and on your schedule. The system was designed with affordability in mind. Combining semiconductor sequencing technology with biochemistry to directly translate chemical information into digital data helps eliminate the need for expensive optics and complex sequencing chemistries, resulting in a sequencing system that is highly affordable to own and operate.

Valuable results can come from valuable samples that are limited in quantity or difficult to work with. The Ion AmpliSeq™ Transcriptome Human Gene Expression Kitfacilitates the use of precious or degraded samples in critical gene expression studies. The Ion AmpliSeq™ Transcriptome Human Gene Expression Kit requires less total RNA than other platforms require for gene expression profiling experiments. This research panel, which works with as little as 10 ng of total RNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues or small amounts of sample, helps reduce the cost and complexity of gene expression analysis through targeted sequencing of more than 20,000 RefSeq transcripts, with up to eight multiplexed samples per single Ion PI™ Chip run on the Ion Proton™ System.
