Conquering humankind’s most serious diseases
Genomics holds immense promise for unraveling the causes of disease, developing better medical diagnostics, and democratizing the concept of mass personalized medicine. The ability to sequence an entire genome at lower cost is fundamentally changing how we identify and treat disease. Life Technologies is rapidly bringing the $1,000 genome within reach for any lab, regardless of size.
Use medical advances made possible by genetic sequencing to facilitate a new era of medical research that alleviates the health and economic burdens on society through precise diagnosis and personalized therapy
Hasten the development of more effective medicines, vaccines, and clinical solutions
In 2012, Life Technologies officially launched the latest breakthrough in sequencing technology: the Ion Proton™ Sequencer, a faster version of its Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM). This revolutionary benchtop instrument promises whole-genome sequencing in a day for less than $1,000, and was named one of The Scientist magazine's top 10 innovations of 2012.
