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

Cancer research

Enabling NGS analysis and discovery of multi-biomarker types (fusions, insertion/deletions (indels), single nucleotide variants, and copy number variations), Oncomine assays are part of an end-to-end workflow that includes simple, scalable sequencing with optimized bioinformatics and reporting—designed for cancer research.

Microbial research

Uncover microbial diversity, study pathogen outbreaks, and identify mutations that may be associated with antibiotic resistance. Take advantage of increased throughput, higher accuracy, and longer reads to produce rapid and accurate sequencing of microbes with streamlined sample preparation and a simple, scalable, and optimized data analysis workflow.

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.

Reproductive health

Human genetics research studies provide the basis and understanding that feed into the development of reproductive health testing tools. Understanding the genetic factors in different populations and age groups are the first steps toward preventative health. Carrier screening and preimplantation genetic testing are part of our comprehensive reproductive health offering.

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.

Scalable targeted NGS to support small and large projects
The Ion GeneStudio S5 system is a scalable, targeted-NGS workhorse with wide application breadth and throughput capability.


Specimen to report in a single day with a hands-off, automated workflow*
The Genexus System is the first turnkey NGS solution that automates the specimen-to-report workflow and delivers results in a single day with just two user touchpoints.* 

NGS utilizes massively parallel sequencing to generate gigabases of sequence information per day, opening doors to new research studies that were once difficult to accomplish in a practical manner. Powered by semiconductor chips, Ion Torrent NGS technology helps you implement a fast and simple workflow that scales to your research needs across multiple applications including inherited diseases, oncology, infectious diseases, reproductive genomics, human identification, and agrigenomics on one platform.

*Specimen-to-report workflow will be available after the Ion Torrent Genexus Purification System and integrated reporting capabilities are added in 2020.
