Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a high-throughput methodology that allows rapid sequencing of DNA or RNA samples. Massive sequencing studies with the Ion GeneStudio S5 sequencer enable a wide range of fast and scalable massive sequencing applications:

Cancer studies or personalized medicine

Genetic selection programs in animals and plants

Metagenomic studies


Gene expression

Genotyping of SNPs and indels (GBS)


Studies of diseases

Five Ion S5 chips are available allowing sequencing throughput ranging from 2M to 130M reads per run. More information. Més informació
