Personal Genome Machine (PGM™) Sequencer

Product Image
Product Description

The Personal Genome Machine (PGM™) Sequencer is a benchtop PostLight™ semiconductor-based platform that performs a sequencing run in approximately two hours. With a small benchtop footprint and a weight of 65 lbs (~30kg), low cost sequencing reagents, and simple touchscreen user interface, the Personal Genome Machine (PGM™) Sequencer brings next generation sequencing to every lab. The PGM™ Sequencer requires a Torrent Server for operation. The PGM™ includes a one year warranty on parts, labor, and travel for service personnel. A field service installation plan for the Personal Genome Machine System maximizes your productivity with installation of the Personal Genome Machine™ System by one of our certified field service engineers.

Features of the Personal Genome Machine™ Sequencing Platform Include:

• Scalable (1000x) semiconductor technology
• Natural biochemistry using inexpensive reagents
• Compatibility with all current library preparation methods
• Sequencing run times of about 2 hours
• A straightforward touchscreen user interface

The Personal Genome Machine™ advances Next-Generation sequencing to PostLight™ sequencing—the translation of chemical sequence information directly into digital form. PostLight™ technology means genetic sequencing is leveraged by the extreme scalability of semiconductor technology. Moore’s law is applied to genetic analysis.

Affordable Sequencing For Nearly Every Lab

Previous sequencing technologies have relied upon optical systems as bridges between the chemical and digital forms of sequence information. These systems have added tremendous costs to sequencers, relegating them to only the largest laboratories. By eliminating the need for the optical system, the Personal Genome Machine™ provides sequencing that is simpler, faster, more cost effective, and more scalable than any other technology available. With a small benchtop footprint and weight of 65 lbs (~30kg), low cost sequencing reagents, and a simple.
