Experience unprecedented specimen-to-report automation and ease of use
The Genexus System integrates and automates nucleic acid extraction, purification, and quantitation, as well as library preparation, sequencing, analysis, and reporting under a single software ecosystem that reduces the number of instruments and consumables required, and frees up your time for more technical applications, boosting your lab’s overall efficiency (Figure 1).
With just 20 minutes of hands-on time and two touch points, all users can get up and running quickly with significantly less training, making NGS accessible even if your lab is new to the technology (Figure 2).
Deliver answers faster
Other NGS technologies, as well as the traditional way of outsourcing samples, can take weeks to get results, which can delay answers. With the Genexus System, you can go from a biological specimen to a report in as little as one day (including sample preprocessing). This allows you to provide NGS results at the same time as other single-gene analysis methods such as immunohistochemistry.
Both instruments come with prefilled reagents and instrument protocols. Plus, the onboard vision system identifies consumable placement and minimizes errors through automated barcode scanning.
Analyze small sample batch quantities cost-effectively
Samples are often processed in batches to keep costs down, which slows turnaround time and affects consistency. With the Ion Torrent™ GX5™ Chip and Genexus™ Coupler, you can process 1–4 samples cost-effectively during a single sequencing run. The GX5 Chip also can multiplex up to 32 single-pool libraries per run.
