Exciting news on Ion Semiconductor Sequencing Technology

Take a look to this video from the Ion World 2012 Conference published on the Ion Torrent Channel on YouTube. This is a report of the work done at the Cancer Genome Research of the National Cancer Institute using 6 Ion Torrents and recently also 4 Ion Protons.
It's really exciting to see such a rapid increase in performance and accuracy for the Ion Torrent platform. Moreover high multiplexing protocols based on AmpliSeq panels seem to cut cost per sample to a very cheap price!

These data are even more interesting considering that they are provided from an independent and authoritative source external to Life Technologies.
