Life Technologies' Ion Personal Genome Machine Receives San Diego's CONNECT Most Innovative New Product Award
Date:12/9/2011

CARLSBAD, Calif., Dec. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation today announced that its Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM™) was honored during the 24th annual Most Innovative New Product "MIP" Awards luncheon hosted by CONNECT in San Diego today.  The judges recognized the PGM for its disruptive technology in the gene sequencing field.

Since its launch in Dec. 2010, the PGM has had strong uptake in research labs around the world and has been key to help solve major public health threats this year. In June, the PGM solved Europe's deadly E. coli outbreak by sequencing the bacterium's DNA in two hours – a feat that would have taken weeks on traditional instruments. The bench top instrument also helped solve a Klebisella pneumoniae outbreak in a Dutch hospital in August – marking the first time whole genome sequencing was used to identify a novel human pathogen.

"Speed, scalability and simplicity has always been at the core of the PGM," said Rob Bennett, head of Research and Development, who accepted Life Technologies' award in the Life Sciences – Diagnostics and Research Tools category. "I and the Ion team at Life Technologies are honored to be recognized for an instrument that is having such a major impact in the genetic analysis field."

A semiconductor chip is at the heart of the PGM's technology. Instead of relying on light-based technology and cameras to capture images of DNA sequences, the PGM is the first instrument of its kind that translates chemical information into digital data.  This is performed on a massively parallel format this is enabled by the chip, which drastically accelerates the sequencing process.

CONNECT is a regional organization that promotes and facilitates the development of innovative technology and life science products in San Diego. It was originally founded as part of Unive
