Ion Personal Genome Machine Sequencer

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. DNA sequencer


  1. Resource Description
    "Ion Torrent combines pre-existing semiconductor technology with a simple sequencing chemistry. The sequencer is essentially a solid state pH meter. Known for scalability, simplicity and speed, this inexpensive technology is really moving fast to achieve new goals in terms of throughput and read length. The main applications of this technology at this point include: • Resequencing of barcoded multiplexed samples, • Sequencing of captured library (captured region 100 Kb to 1 Mb) using 316 chip • Sequencing of bacterial and viral genomes • Sequencing of metagenomic samples with 200 b sequencing chemistry • RNA-seq specially small RNA sequencing • Validation of sequence data obtained on other platforms • Low cost sequencing of BAC clones and other constructs e.g. gene targeting vector"
