Default New Ion Torrent Sequencer?

So I just read an article on AllSeq.com talking about a new Ion Torrent based sequencer thats in the works. Apparently its called the S5 or S5 XL.

I tried looking for it online but couldn't find anything so I decided to ask here. Has anyone heard anything about this? Thanks!

Image is from here:

https://fccid.io/document.php?id=2554606

Actually relating to a RFID reader: https://fccid.io/2AD9Z-INS1011976??

But yes, basically part of an operations manual for an S5/S5XL sequencer although described as an Ion Torrent S5A sequencer in the image.

Do we still care about Ion Torrent as a platform?

@GW_OK: Are these new (as yet unannounced) sequencers or a variant that use the same chips as proton?

Welp, the pictures in that manual sure look different from a Proton. And the S5 trademark was just granted this past spring. And said manual calls for
Quote:
Ion 520™, Ion 530™, or Ion 540™ Chip
So I reckon it's all new.

And, given that AllSeq's site is scrubbed now maybe it's still hush hush.

Looks like it's got some sort of Miseq-like reagent system. Cartridges and RFIDs and all that.

You can see the door RFID reader in the door by changing the link above to end in 2554607.

Also, having a further look at the FCC's site for that ID shows there's more info but it's been sequestered until 9/9/15.

This is about 2 weeks prior to the AGBT precision medicine meeting out in Arizona. Coincidence? Maybe they'll unveil it then...

This is an "unannounced" sequencer AFAWK so you must be participating in a test program under an NDA?

Unless this sequencer has been "stealth" released without a formal product announcement.

Based on the (very polite) request we received to take down the info we had shared, I'd say these instruments have not been released yet, stealth or otherwise. But since we weren't given any extra info, I'm just guessing.

Should have said they've not been 'launched'. They certainly may have been 'released' in the form of early access.

And is it already delivering on the read lengths and output promised for the end of 2013?

I thought the only default option one had was to deny existence/all knowledge of the "entity" that was subject of a NDA. I was surprised at your admission in that context.
