  1. Fee for service
  2. Resource Description
    "Ion Torrent combines pre-existing semiconductor technology with a simple sequencing chemistry ( http://www.iontorrent.com ). The sequencer is essentially a solid state pH meter. Known for scalability, simplicity and speed, this inexpensive technology provides an array of options from 500K reads on a 314 chip to 5M reads on a 318 chip as well as a read length of 200 and 400b. The sequencing runs are only 4 – 8 hours compared to few days run on Illumina. Only one sample is run at a time. So there is no waiting necessary to fill out a plate, a flow cell or a slide unlike other new generation sequencing platforms."
  3. Resource Description
    Several off-the shelf targeted gene panels available: • AmpliSeq Cancer Hotspot Panel v2 • Comprehensive Cancer Panel • AmpliSeq Inherited Disease Panel • AmpliSeq Custom Panel
