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.

Self-Assembling, Biomimetic Membranes May Aid Water Filtration
A synthetic membrane that self assembles and is easily produced may lead to better gas separation, water purification, drug delivery and DNA recognition, according to an international team of researchers.
Researchers Discover Immune System’s 'Trojan Horse'
Oxford University researchers have found that human cells use viruses as Trojan horses, transporting a messenger that encourages the immune system to fight the very virus that carries it.

NIH researchers gain better understanding of how neuropeptide hormones trigger chemical reactions in cells.
How Cholesterol Leads to Clogged Arteries
A new study shows that when immune cells called neutrophils are exposed to cholesterol crystals, they release large extracellular web-like structures that trigger the production of inflammatory molecules linked to artherosclerosis.
Genetic Tug of War
Researchers have reported on a version of genetic parental control in mice that is more targeted, and subtle than canonical imprinting.
Ultrafast DNA Diagnostics
New technology developed by UC Berkeley bioengineers promises to make a workhorse lab tool cheaper, more portable and many times faster by accelerating the heating and cooling of genetic samples with the switch of a light.
Researchers Discover New Type of Mycovirus
Virus infects the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus, which can cause the human disease aspergillosis.
Error Correction Mechanism in Cell Division
Cell biologists have reported an advance in understanding the workings of an error correction mechanism that helps cells detect and correct mistakes in cell division early enough to prevent chromosome mis-segregation and aneuploidy, that is, having too many or too few chromosomes.
