Ion Torrent next-generation sequencing exploits the fact that addition of a dNTP to a DNA polymer releases a hydrogen ion. The pH change resulting from those hydrogen ions is measured using semiconductors. By simultaneously measuring millions of such changes the sequence of each fragment is determined.
