Specimen to report in a single day with a hands-off, automated workflow

The Ion Torrent Genexus System is the first turnkey next-generation sequencing (NGS) solution that automates the specimen-to-report workflow and delivers results in a single day with just two user touchpoints.*

This highly flexible system lets you process samples—even just one—cost-effectively as they come in. And its simplicity and practicality make it easy for your clinical research or testing lab to bring NGS in-house, regardless of your team’s current level of NGS expertise.

In-house NGS accessible like never before

Watch Dr. Jose Costa from IPATIMUP discuss how the Genexus System helps address the challenges with implementing NGS in clinical research labs.

First impressions: what our customers say

Watch our customers’ reactions after seeing the Genexus System for the first time at the 2019 Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) meeting.

Unprecedented specimen-to-report automation*

The Genexus System consists of a purification system and an integrated sequencer, combining and automating nucleic acid extraction and purification, library preparation, sequencing, and analysis reporting under a single software ecosystem*. This reduces the number of instruments and consumables required and frees your time for more technical applications, boosting your lab’s overall efficiency. Its minimal user touchpoints lower user variability, increasing reproducibility of results.

Genexus Integrated Sequencer Workflow

Single-day turnaround time

Other NGS technologies, as well as the traditional way of outsourcing samples, can take weeks to get results, which may delay answers. With the Genexus System, you can go from a biological specimen to report in just one day*. This allows you to provide NGS results at the same time as other single-gene methods such as immunohistochemistry (IHC).

Unmatched ease of use

The hands-off, set-up-and-go workflow of the Genexus System makes the technology accessible even if your lab is new to the technology. With just 10 minutes of hands-on time and two touchpoints, all users can get up and running quickly with significantly less training*. And with less operational hands-on time compared to current technologies, the Genexus System can help improve your lab’s productivity.

How the Genexus system workflow stacks up

Go from specimen to report in a single day with ten minutes of hands-on time and two touchpoints*—only with the Genexus System.

Ability to analyze individual samples cost-effectively

Ion Torrent GX5 Chip

It’s difficult for some labs to predict the volume and type of samples they’ll receive in a given time. Samples are often processed in batches to keep costs down, which slows turnaround time and affects consistency. The new Ion Torrent GX5 Chip is designed with four lanes to support variability in sample intake, so you can process one to four samples cost-effectively at once. The GX5 chip can also multiplex up to 32 single-pool libraries per run.


Use the Genexus System across clinical research applications including oncology and inherited disease. We will add other applications in the near future.

Genexus System applications

Service and support

To get you up and running quickly, our field service engineers will install your Genexus System on-site and our field applications scientists will provide hands-on training to show you how to maintain and run your new instrument.

To keep your lab operating at maximum productivity, smart features are included to enable fast and effective diagnosis and resolution of issues and more effective instrument or application troubleshooting.
