Equipment summary

MinION is the only portable real-time device for DNA and RNA sequencing. Each consumable flow cell can now generate 1020 Gb of DNA sequence data. Ultra-long read lengths are possible (hundreds of kb, e.g. 100,000bp) 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.
