Ion Torrent™ Next Gen Sequencing

Fast Turnaround with Semiconductor Sequencing

Elim stands for high quality, fast turnaround and cost-effective NGS services. We provide library preps, enrichment and bioinformatics as part of our comprehensive NGS services on the Ion Torrent platform.

Elim uses the most advanced Ion Torrent™ sequencers (Ion PGM™ & Ion Proton™) to support your genomic needs. Ion Torrent delivers fast run times and economical sequencing for many applications, including whole genome sequencing of bacteria, viruses and microbial. Ion PGM™ comes with three chip options for different data output speeds. Ion Proton™ can deliver up to 10 Gb of data in a single run, and accelerate exome sequencing when prepped with Ion AmpliSeq™ enrichment technology.

Our entire NGS workflow is optimized to ensure consistently fast turnaround and high quality sequencing data. Contact Elim to discuss your NGS needs.
