Default IonTorren PGM/Proton + Cloud vs. Illumina + Bioinformatics Core

Hi Everyone,

I posted a few weeks back introducing myself to the general forum (research scientist with the NSF I-Corps program). Since then, I've spent my time speaking to lab directors in clinical facilities (especially smaller labs). We've found that a lot of groups are opting for the IonTorrent PGM or Proton + Ingenuity pipeline for their next-gen work. Specifically, they've cited the fact that the cost is lower than Illumina and they don't need any bioinformaticians or computer cluster resources for post-run processing as influential factors. Thought I'd see if anyone here might weigh in. Both are very different approaches, and we're trying to understand if IonTorrent and cloud processing is really picking up steam with new/emerging clinical diagnostic labs. Any opinions/thoughts are welcomed. Thanks and have a good weekend!

But they do sell you the compute server separately when you purchase the PGM yes?
I have not heard about the Ingenuity pipeline but am interested to know more. for clinical diagnostics
the fact that Ion PGM Dx is listed as a Class II medical device should make things interesting
