Focused NGS Solutions for SARS-CoV-2 Research

Unlike other next-generation sequencing (NGS) approaches, Ion Torrent focused NGS solutions for SARS-CoV-2 research provide the speed, scalability, and precision you need to spend more time finding answers and less time looking for them.

Ion Torrent targeted NGS can be used for research of viral typing, viral discovery, epidemiology (contact tracking, tracing, and surveillance), host genetics and immune response, vaccines and therapeutics research.

Benefits of targeted NGS for SARS-CoV-2 research include:

  • Rapid turnaround time
  • Automated workflow
  • End-to-end solution from nucleic acid to analysis
  • Accuracy of variants
  • Low input requirements
  • Compatible with challenging samples
