Semiconductor Sequencing Technology
Ion Torrent™ uses a new sequencing technology that brings the transformative power of the semiconductor to the life sciences.
Ion Torrent™ Technology directly translates chemically encoded information (A, C, G, T) into digital information (0, 1) on a semiconductor chip. This approach marries simple chemistry to proprietary semiconductor technology-its Watson meets Moore. The result is a sequencing technology that is simpler, faster, more cost effective and scalable than any other technology available. The semiconductor has transformed every industry it's touched. Just as the microprocessor enabled desktop computing to displace the mainframe, semiconductor technology will inevitably democratize sequencing, putting it within the reach of any lab or clinic.
