The NGS technology is a high-throughput methodology enabling the rapid sequencing of the base pairs in DNA or RNA samples. It supports the broad range of applications, including gene expression profiling, chromosome counting, detection of epigenetic changes, and molecular analysis. With the application of Ion S5 in the NGS systems, targeted sequencing of genes is now simpler than ever.

Why Ion S5 NGS systems are better over any other NGS systems: 

  • Less than 15 minutes of sequencing set up time
  • 30 minutes of hands-on time for library and template prep
  • Easy and accurate RFID tracking
  • DNA to data in as little as 24 hours
  • As little as 1 ng of DNA or RNA for low-quality, low-input samples

With the simplest DNA-to-data workflow for targeted sequencing with industry-leading speed and affordability, Ion S5 in NGS systems allows to spend less time doing repetitive lab work, and more time answering the critical questions in the research. The Ion S5 Systems are the only benchtop NGS platforms with run times as short as 2.5 hours, and rapid DNA-to-data workflows that can be completed in as little as 24 hours.

The new lab which is in the heart of south Delhi, Green Park area is operational from January 2018.
