Ion OneTouch System

Resource Type

  1. Digital polymerase chain reaction system


  1. Resource Description
    "The Ion OneTouch™ System comprises two modules: the Ion OneTouch™ Instrument and the Ion OneTouch™ ES (enrichment system). At the heart of the Ion OneTouch™ Instrument are three breakthrough technologies that enable automated delivery of templated Ion Sphere™ particles. The first is the reaction filter that creates millions of microreactors in which clonal amplification occurs. The second is the revolutionary inline PCR amplification plate that enables thermal cycling of the microreactors. The third is the integrated centrifuge, which recovers the templated Ion Sphere™ particles. Combined, these first-in-class technologies deliver massively parallel clonal amplification and recovery with walk-away operation—all in a small benchtop footprint. The Ion OneTouch™ ES employs proven magnetic bead technology to isolate template-positive Ion Sphere™ particles that can be loaded directly onto the Ion semiconductor chip—delivering automated, highly reproducible enrichment with every run."
