Ion Torrent (Life Technologies) Sequencer performs real-time measurements of hydrogen ions produced during DNA replication. Ion semiconductor chips employ a massively parallel array of semiconductor sensors to directly translate genetic information (DNA) to digital information (DNA sequence). This groundbreaking technology enables rapid and scalable sequencing across a range of applications. It requires the lowest capital investment for the greatest research impact.
PROJECT TITLE: Ion Torrent
PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR: Gabriella Restagno – OIRM – S. Anna Molinette Turin
The ION sequencer will be positioned at the new laboratory of Molecular Genetics of the Regional Center for Genetics OIRM – S.Anna Molinette Turin, where it will be a ALS laboratory linked to the Clinical Center of the Professor Adriano Chió, representative of ITALSGEN.
