The Ion Chef System is the next generation of workflow simplification products for the Ion S5, Ion Proton, and Ion PGM systems. The Ion Chef System provides automated library preparation, template preparation, and chip loading for users at any experience level. In less than 15 minutes of up-front hands-on time and with the use of pre-packaged library preparation reagent kits, the Ion Chef System provides a convenient walk-away workflow resulting in equalized, pooled libraries ready for templating. The automated workflow supports Ion AmpliSeq one- and two-pool designs. See www.AmpliSeq.com to design your own custom panels. Compared to the four hours of hands-on time required with the Ion OneTouch 2 System, the Ion Chef System enables significantly higher productivity. Again, in less than 15 minutes of hands-on time, the fully automated template preparation provides two chips ready for sequencing.
