MinION: DNA Sequencer


Oxford Nanopore is developing a new generation of sequencing technology that uses nanopores to deliver ultra long read length single molecule sequence data, at competitive accuracy, on scalable electronic GridION platform.  The miniaturised version of this technology, MinION, will make nanopore sequencing universally accessible. The disposable DNA sequencing device is the size of a USB memory stick and is expected to retail at less than $900.
