It took a lot of tuning, but now it sequences full-length immune repertoires.
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:Immune repertoire sequencing

"I purchased an Ion Torrent PGM for immune repertoire sequencing. The application was not supported, but I was attracted to the PGM platform because it was the only one at the time offering reads longer than 400 bases. A couple of years later Ion developed 500 base chemistry. The whole process is much faster than Illumina, although the throughput is lower. There is no need to put pair mates together and the read quality is not bad. It took a long time to adapt the existing protocols for immune repertoire sequencing, but the results were pretty good."

This instrument has good high quality output with little effort for its running.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Genome sequencing, transcriptome sequencing and metagenomics

"Yes, I would recommend this instrument for the labs working on genomics, transcriptomics and metagenomics. The work flow is easy and hardly requires any expertise for its running. I got higher output for genome sequencing than claimed by the company. The sequencing time is also less. "

Simple to handle, superior in terms of quality of data.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:For Whole Genome Sequencing, Transcriptome Study, Metagenome Study, NIPT, PGS And Custom Disease

"Yes, the system is very robust now easy to handle it, previously the biggest issue with this kind of chemistry systems are pH of water and reagents made from it and temperature as well as pressure now totally removed from system, also get good quality data with enough space on chip sets they offer to us, I must recommend to NGS users and New users think for NGS."

Best sequencer at a reasonable price
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Sequencing for research

"Best and fastest DNA sequencing I've ever had. Just as simple as any other sequencer to use. Thermo Fisher continues to be the best in class."

Size saves valuable bench space and turnaround time can be done in as little as 24 hours.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:FFPE tissue sequencing

"This machine is easy to use given its simple interface. It takes about 20 minutes of user time to set-up a sequencing run. Larger sample sizes are less of a concern since small amounts of FFPE DNA sample can be used. The website contains good product information as well as several FAQ's to help with troubleshooting. Basic training is included and additional training is available for a fee either on or offsite."

Easy and fast to use.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Mostly ChIP-seq but also RNA-seq/Dnase-seq etc.

"Easy and fast to use, high quality results in short time, definitely a contender to Illumina! Although the Illumina NGS instruments are the most popular I believe this Ion Torrent is a strong competitor with high quality sequencing results in a short time frame!"
