Nanopore sequencing is a new technology that basically depends on DNA sequence translocation through nanometer size pores by applying an electric field and measuring physical changes.  It offers scientic researchers:

  • Sequence any DNA/RNA fragment length from short to ultra-longCharacterise more genetic variation, versatile to broad applications
  • Direct sequencing of native DNA/RNAGenerate content-rich data, including methylation
  • Data available in real timeRapid insights, and analyses that can respond to results in real time
  • Scalable from portable devices to ultra-high throughput desktop devicesSequence anything, anywhere
  • No capital investment requiredAccessible and cost effective
  • Simple & rapid, or automated, library prepEasy to use and versatile

MinION MK1c nanaopore sequencer renders up to 50 Gb data from a single flow cell when system is run for 72 hours at 420 bases / second. Outputs may vary according to library type, run conditions, etc.
