Get the fastest, most comprehensive insights into your samples. Only nanopore sequencing combines real-time data delivery with the ability to reveal accurate, rich biological data through the analysis of short to ultra-long fragments of native DNA or RNA.

The benefits of nanopore sequencing include:

  • Any length read - from short to ultra-long (>4 Mb)
  • Streamlined workflows - library prep in as little as 10 minutes
  • Sequence native DNA/RNA - eliminate amplification-bias and directly identify epigenetic modifications (e.g. methylation)
  • Real-time data streaming - immediate access to actionable results
  • Portable, affordable devices - sequence anywhere
