“บริการ BioImport พร้อมแล้วที่จะช่วยคุณนำเข้า Oxford Nanopore: The only sequencer that offers direct DNA/RNA sequencing


Nanopore sequencing, the only technology that offers:

  • Direct DNA/RNA sequencing
  • REAL Real-time
  • No capital cost required
  • Ultra-long reads – up to 2 Mb
  • Scalable to portable or desktop
  • Simple & rapid, or automated, library prep
  • High yields for large genomes


MinION is the only portable, real-time device for DNA and RNA sequencing, putting you in control of your sequence data.

Each consumable flow cell can now generate as much as 30 Gb of DNA sequence data or 7-12 million reads if you are analysing RNA. Ultra-long read lengths are possible (hundreds of kb) as you can choose your fragment length. The MinION streams data in real time so that analysis can be performed during the experiment and workflows are fully versatile.

The MinION weighs under 100 g and plugs into a PC or laptop using a high-speed USB 3.0 cable, or used alongside the MinIT device for real-time, powerful analyses.  Not constrained to a laboratory environment, it has been used up a mountain, in a jungle, in the arctic and on the International Space Station.

The MinION is commercially available, simply by paying a starter-pack fee of $1,000. The MinION starter pack includes materials you need to run initial sequencing experiments, including a MinION device, flow cells and kits, as well as membership of the Nanopore Community.


MinION workflow

MinION workflows are designed for simplicity.

1D library preparation can take <10 minutes. A range of preparation kits are available to support analysis of DNA, cDNA and direct RNA. Data is streamed in real time, allowing you to run the instrument until you have generated sufficient data to answer the question and then move on to the next experiment. Real-time analyses can also provide a faster sample-to-answer time.
