Sequencing on Ion Proton™ and Ion S5XL™ systems is provided by NGI Uppsala (Uppsala Genome Center).
UGC is currently offering sequencing services on Ion Technology™ (Thermo Fisher Scientific) on both ready-to-use, custom designed, and community AmpliSeq panels for both DNA and RNA studies. Examples of ready-to-use AmpliSeq DNA panels are Human Exome, Comprehensive Cancer, Cancer Hot Spot, etc. AmpliSeq Human Transcriptome is used for differential gene expression studies only and is suitable also for FFPE samples). The short turn-around time between sample submission and result make these applications ideal for early stages of experiments and for clinical applications.
Sequencing by Ion TechnologyTM (Thermo Fisher Scientific) is suitable for whole genome re-sequencing (WGS), human exome sequencing, targeted re-sequencing, whole transcriptome sequencing, (on model organisms), small RNA (miRNA) sequencing, metagenomics studies (16S), amplicon sequencing, chromatin-immunoprecipitated (ChiP) sequencing and more.
The following sequencing instruments are available:
