Join us at IonWorld 2021, a virtual conference, where speakers will share their experiences in advancing clinical research using Ion Torrent™ Next-Generation Sequencing Solutions. Learn about Thermo Fisher Scientific’s exciting journey of discovery and innovation making NGS as simple and as accessible as PCR.

The demands are growing for comprehensive molecular information, available in a timely manner to generate impactful results, in clinical oncology research and other research applications, including: microbial and infectious disease, inherited disease, reproductive health and more.

The Genexus System enables fast, automated NGS results in a single day, which makes the workflow suitable for use in any laboratory setting. Requiring only two touch points, minimum hands-on time, the Genexus System is particularly suited for laboratories that need results quickly while minimizing user errors. Hear from clinical researchers that are using the Ion Torrent Genexus System for clinical oncology research, SARS-CoV-2 surveillance, and inherited disease research testing.

The Ion GeneStudio S5 system and Ion Chef Instrument have been cited in over 1,000 publications and continue to support research in a wide variety of areas. Learn about our offerings supporting research in reproductive health, exome sequencing, microbiome, and a wide variety of other application areas.
