Ion PGM™ Dx System – in vitro diagnostics in regulated laboratory environments


Designed to serve the broad clinical molecular diagnostics community, Ion PGM™ Dx System combines the speed and simplicity of the Ion Torrent™ platform with key workflow advantages designed specifically for in vitro diagnostic applications in regulated laboratory environments. 


Ion PGM™ Dx System offers a complete next-generation sequencing (NGS) system of instruments, reagents and software, all developed in accordance with ISO 13485 requirements. It is also developed under design control and thus has a complete design history file. Validation using germline variants with library kits based on proven Ion AmpliSeq™ technology enables accurate and reliable genetic analysis from more clinical samples, even with a limited amount of DNA. In-run control for automatic assessment of run success is also included. User-created protocols are run in a locked workflow environment.


By offering role-based workflows, sample and reagent tracking, QC metrics and audit trail, Ion PGM™ Dx System helps enable 21CFR part 11 compliance. Furthermore, it is compatible with many LIMS, providing XML input and manager-controlled data output.
