Ion Torrent developing yet another innovative approach to DNA and RNA analysis

Overview: Ion Torrent’s US 2010/0035252 patent application was published in February 2010. The patent is designed to cover an innovative approach to measurement of base or multiple-base-segment incorporation during sequencing-by-synthesis. The early-stage technology is based on measuring DNA or RNA length in a microfluidic flow cell. Ion Torrent’s proposed technology differs markedly from its core sequencing platform of semiconductor-based ion detection associated with sequencing-by-synthesis – though the technology in the recent filing also obviates or reduces the need for fluorescent labels.
