About the PromethION P2

PromethION 2 (P2) devices maintain the flexibility associated with PromethION 24 and PromethION 48 devices but in a compact, accessible form factor. They are designed for small to medium sized academic and research labs, as well as core labs and commercial service providers — delivering the benefits of high-coverage nanopore sequencing to users with lower sample processing requirements (i.e. up to four full-length sequencing runs per week/200 flow cells per year). Each flow cell has the capacity to deliver hundreds of gigabases of nanopore sequencing data and present a convenient way to rapidly enable the coverage required for the sequencing of larger genomes. Additionally, P2 devices allow users to explore applications and projects enabled by high-output nanopore sequencing, before committing to a P24 or P48 device.

PromethION 2 devices are available in two different form factors:

  • P2: a self-contained benchtop nanopore sequencer containing a powerful GPU and running two high-output PromethION Flow Cells
  • P2 Solo: a sequencing unit for two PromethION Flow Cells, utilising computational resource within the GridION Mk1, or other suitable pre-existing compute, to quickly enable high-depth nanopore sequencing with minimal outlay

P2 devices are currently available for pre-order under Early Access (links below). More information is available on the relevant store pages.
