Nanopore Certification

The GridION and PromethION certification programmes are designed to ensure certified service labs can offer the highest quality service on Oxford Nanopore sequencing platforms. To obtain certification the service lab will need to purchase a lab certification as well as an instrument certification for each device they plan to certify.
