You’re on a mission to uncover answers. And not just any answers—extraordinary answers that ultimately advance health and improve life for people around the world.

Unlike other NGS approaches, with Ion Torrent focused next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology you get the speed, scalability, and precision you need to spend more time finding answers and less time looking for them.

Cancer research, microbial research, complex disease research—multiple applications and comprehensive solutions, all in one NGS system.

Sharpen your focus and find the answers with Ion Torrent focused NGS solutions

Complex disease

Complex disease

Our complete NGS solutions are uniquely suited to research in understanding how the combination of genetics and the environment influence development of complex diseases such as autoimmune disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and many others.

Human identification

Human identification

Adopting NGS for forensic DNA analysis and phenotyping in your laboratory is simpler than ever when you combine the Ion Chef System and Ion GeneStudio S5 Systems with optimized Precision ID library preparation, template preparation and sequencing kits, and forensically relevant panels.



Uncover traits to drive breeding decisions and help address the challenges of feeding a growing global population. Our instruments, reagents, and solutions for plant and animal genotyping applications enable simple, scalable, and affordable NGS that can help you drive remarkable agricultural innovations.
