The Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM) System combines semiconductor sequencing technology with natural biochemistry to directly translate chemical information into digital data, democratizing sequencing and making it accessible to your lab. This established system leverages the exponential improvements in the semiconductor industry (known as Moore’s Law) to provide scalability and flexibility for various applications.
The Ion PGM System uses natural sequencing chemistry, which eliminates the need for expensive optics and reduces complex chemistries to measure natural DNA extension. The system leverages direct, real-time sequencing detection, providing sequencing results typically in 3–7 hours. With its small benchtop footprint, weight of about 65 lbs (30 kg), low-cost sequencing reagents, and simple touchscreen user interface, the Ion PGM System brings next-generation sequencing to your lab.
