Flow cells and devices

A range of nanopore flow cells and sequencing devices are available to suit all requirements — from low-output Flongle Flow Cells to high-output PromethION Flow Cells, usable on low- to high-throughput sequencing devices. Starter packs are available from just $1,999, providing low-cost access to the benefits of short to ultra-long, native DNA and RNA sequencing reads.

Sequencing devices

From $1,999
The only portable, real-time devices for DNA and RNA sequencing, giving complete control and creativity over when, where and how often you sequence, regardless of application.
From $67,000
Compact benchtop device designed to run and analyse up to five MinION or Flongle Flow Cells
From $9,555
High-coverage nanopore sequencing in formats ranging from modular, fully-integrated devices, to high-throughput solutions. Each flow cell can deliver the lowest price per Gb for nanopore sequencing.
From $1,460
Flongle is an adapter for MinION or GridION that enables direct, real-time DNA sequencing, or cDNA sequencing on smaller, single-use flow cells.

One platform. Any scale.
Three flow cells.
