Next Generation Sequencing

Welcome to North American Genomics, where we offer advanced Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) services using the Ion Torrent platform. Our NGS platform enables rapid sequencing of DNA or RNA samples, supporting a wide range of applications in fields such as human genetics research, cancer research, microbial sequencing, reproductive health, and agrigenomics.

Why Choose Ion Torrent NGS?

Our Ion Torrent platform provides accurate and reliable results, enabling research and innovation across a range of fields. With targeted sequencing applications for cancer research, gene expression sequencing, epigenetics and methylation analysis, human microbiome research, and infectious disease and microbial research, we offer a comprehensive suite of services to suit your needs. Our targeted sequencing approach using Ion AmpliSeq technology focuses on genes or genetic variants of interest, such as oncogenes and tumor suppressors in cancer research. Our Ion Torrent platform also offers solutions for human identification (HID) and HLA typing, enabling forensic DNA analysis and phenotyping, from genotyping to STRs to NGS-based genotyping.

NGS Applications:

  • Human genetics research
  • Cancer research
  • Complex disease research
  • Microbial sequencing
  • Agrigenomics
  • DNA sequencing (Exome)
  • RNA sequencing (Transcriptome)
  • Epigenetic sequencing
  • de novo sequencing
  • HLA typing

We Also Provide AgriSeq NGS

Molecular breeding can reduce costs and time in delivering better agricultural plant and animal species. Genomic technologies make breeding programs faster with higher-throughput genotyping across large populations. Applied Biosystems' AgriSeq GBS targets genotyping by sequencing, an innovative solution for high-throughput genotyping that helps customers save money.

The Benefits of the Ion Torrent Platform

At North American Genomics, we are committed to providing our clients with the most advanced and reliable genomic analysis solutions for a wide range of applications, including agrigenomics. That's why we exclusively use the Ion Torrent S5 Prime.

Our platform provides several key benefits over other platforms on the market, including affordability, flexibility, and faster go-to-market testing. With Ion Torrent, you can achieve high-throughput sequencing at a lower cost, allowing you to allocate more resources towards your research and applications.

The Ion Torrent S5 Prime system provides flexibility in sample preparation, allowing you to sequence both DNA and RNA from the same sample. This flexibility is achieved through the use of different library preparation kits and workflows tailored to various applications, including DNA and RNA sequencing. By offering faster go-to-market testing, the Ion Torrent S5 Prime system can help accelerate research and product development timelines, giving you a competitive edge.
