Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine (PGM) System:
This is a bench-top NGS based amplicon sequencing system which combines semiconductor sequencing technology with biochemistry (change in pH) to directly translate chemical information into digital data. This is highly suitable for targeted DNA and RNA sequencing and whole genome sequencing of microbes. It can generate both 200 and 400 bp long reads with the output in the range 30 Mb to 2 Gb using appropriate chips.
