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.
The certification programme is designed to ensure certified service labs can offer the highest quality service on Oxford Nanopore devices.
Depending on the chosen devices all certification packages will include flow cells and reagents in order for the laboratory to complete the certification process.
Certified service providers
Once the laboratory is certified, it will be added to our approved list of certified service providers across the world.
Step one: Consultation
A consultation with the Oxford Nanopore technical team will cover lab equipment, reagents, protocols and infrastructure requirements to ensure success during the certification process.
Step two: Timeline
A timeline for the certification runs, data analysis and final data review is developed.
Step two: Run
The service lab performs the certification runs.
Step two: Review
The data generated during certification is submitted for review.
Step two: Certification
The certification is issued and it will be valid for one year. Users will have the ability to add extra devices to their lab certification at any time and the cost will be pro-rata to the amount of time left on the Lab certification.
