Ion Torrent Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is now available for service at our core facility.
The Ion Torrent NGS, powered by semiconductor chip technology, delivers the fastest run times of any next-generation
sequencing platform available today.
The Chip is the Machine: three chips are available for multiple applications. Depending on the throughput requirement
of an experiment, researchers are able to choose the 314, the 316 or the 318 sequencing chips.
The Ion PGM™ Sequencer is ideal for sequencing small genomes, sets of genes, or performing gene expression profiling.
Example applications include:
AmpliSeq™ Fixed Panels
AmpliSeq™ Custom Panels
Microbial Genome Sequencing

To use our Ion Torrent NGS service, researchers will need to construct the DNA or RNA library for their sequencing
application. Detailed information of reagent kits and protocols for library construction, and a very informative Decision Tree
for Ion PGM Applications are available on the Ion Community website. Our core lab will QC the library with Bioanalyzer,
prepare templates using the Ion OneTouch system, run sequencing on the Personal Genome Machine (PGM), and analyze
data with the Torrent Suite™ software.
