This is a semiconductor-based next-gen sequencing system.
Five Ion S5 chips enable a sequencing throughput range of 2M to 130M reads per run.
Sequencing throughput that will support several applications of NGS.
Such as: Inherited Disease Research, Cancer research, Reproductive Health Research, and Gene Expression Analysis to name a few.
The Ion Chef System is also a next gen workflow simplification product for the Ion GeneStudio S5 System. It provides automated library preparation, template preparation, and chip loading for users at any experience level.
