Minutes to design Human
or Mouse DNA panels

Simplicity Scalability Speed
Customize with your genes 12 to 6,144 amplicons per pool Just minutes to submit design
10 ng of input DNA One to hundreds of genes Automated primer design in 2 hours
Simple PCR-based target selection 96 barcodes for multiplexing Targeted library constructed in 3.5 hours


If the Ion AmpliSeq™ Ready-to-use Panels don’t match your gene targets then simply select a subset of the targets or simply enter your specific genomic content online and we will design and create customized Ion AmpliSeq™ Panels just for you.

Creating and ordering custom panels is easy with the Ion AmpliSeq™ Designer—a free, online assay design tool that connects you directly to our assay design pipeline.  It's developed, optimized, and proven for human gene sequencing. All you need is a list of HUGO gene symbols or gene regions based on hg19 coordinates. Register at the Ion Community to use this solution.

Custom panels are delivered in two formats:  tubes of pre-pooled multiplexed primers in ready-to-use concentration and 384-well plates in which each well contains individual primer pairs in concentrated format.  For custom panels with ≤96 primer pairs, you will receive 2,250 total reactions.  For custom panels with >96 primer pairs, you will receive 9,000 total reactions.
