Oxford Nanopore Technologies

To enable the analysis of anything, by anyone, anywhere.

Oxford Nanopore makes a novel generation of DNA/RNA sequencing technology that provides rich data, is fast, accessible, and easy to use. Our goal is to disrupt the way that biological analyses are currently performed, and open up new applications that have a profound, positive impact on society. 

Oxford Nanopore Technologies products are currently for research use only.

The affordable, pocket-sized MinION and MinION Mk1C devices, which can deliver tens of gigabases of data in a single run, make sequencing accessible to any researcher across a wide range of applications. 

Benefits of nanopore sequencing technology 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

Sequencing devices

Get complete control and creativity over when, where, and how often you sequence with MinION and MinION Mk1C — portable and affordable, real-time sequencing devices. 

Flow cells

Consumable components for MinION and MinION Mk1C devices that process the prepared DNA/RNA sample.

DNA library prep kits

Streamlined library preparation kits for nanopore sequencing, optimised for a wide range of applications — from direct sequencing of whole genomes or metagenomes to targeted sequencing of specific regions of interest. 

RNA library prep kits

Sequence full-length transcripts and RNA viruses in single reads using nanopore technology. Use cDNA-based approaches for low-input amounts or directly sequence native RNA to include epigenetic modifications.

Expansion packs

Additional reagents and consumables to support your nanopore sequencing assays.
