Ion Semiconductor Sequencing Data Presentations at AGBT Demonstrate More than >1,000-fold Throughput Scaling in First Two Years on the Market
Date:2/22/2013

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) announced today that three scientists are presenting data at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) conference showing the Ion PI chip is on the same rapid performance trajectory demonstrated by the first three Ion PGM™ chips. Since the first Ion chip launched two years ago, semiconductor sequencing output has jumped over 1,000-fold from 10 Mb to more than 10 Gb, and that pace is expected to continue in 2013.

  • Dr. Jonathan M. Rothberg , Ion Torrent's Founder and CEO, presented data showing 16 Gb throughput on the Ion Proton™ Sequencer with readlengths out to 230 base pairs. Dr. Rothberg said he expects the Ion Proton™ PI Chip to deliver 12 Gb in customers' hands in the second quarter and 16 Gb by mid-year.
  • Joseph Boland , Director of Research and Development, Cancer Genomics Research Laboratory, US National Cancer Institute, presented data showing his lab had generated greater than 12 Gb of high-quality data per run, out to 200 base pair read length, while sequencing a human exome on the Ion Proton™ Sequencer.
  • Dr. Agnes Viale , manager of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center's Genomics Core Laboratory, today will present transcriptome data showing her lab generated more than 80 million reads on a single run on the Ion Proton™ Sequencer.

"Ion semiconductor sequencing technology gets better, faster than any sequencing technology," said Dr. Rothberg, who invented next-generation sequencing nearly a decade ago. "We're seeing the same rapid ramp up in performance on the Ion Proton™ PI chip that we saw on the three
