Oxford Nanopore Technologies offers long-read capabilities on several third-generation sequencing platforms. These platforms have the capabilities to sequence Native and Cycled DNA, cDNA, and RNA through an engineered pore. The range of possibilities for projects on Oxford Nanopore Technologies is continually expanding at a very exciting rate and we always strive to offer the best service for research needs. We highly recommend meeting to go over your project plan so we can best assist with offering Oxford Nanopore Technologies services and create a Project Summary Plan to meet your goals.
We are Certified Service Providers and run two distinct platforms to optimally fulfill your sequencing depth and coverage needs.
We use the GridION for our small to mid-sized projects. We have the flexibility to run up to 5 flow cells at a time, allowing us to work through several projects at a single time or dedicate all the space to a single sample set. We have projects generating upwards of 10Gb per flow cell and this allows us to secure the desired depth of coverage for your DNA project.
The PromethION 24 allows us to significantly increase the coverage of sequencing projects. We can run 24 flow cells at a time, generating 100Gb for each. This platform is ideal for large projects, such as complete plant or human genomes.
A Flongle is a smaller sized flow cell that can be run on the GridION at a lower cost. It offers us the unique opportunity to test parameters prior to fully implementing large projects. It is also ideal for pilot projects and projects that may not require much data.
The Bioinformatics Resource Center is highly skilled at handling Oxford Nanopore Technologies data. We highly recommend contacting their experts to set up a meeting and work on your project plan.
We MUST have this information before we can proceed with your request.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange all sample submissions. Samples and submission forms must be submitted before a project can be entered into our queue.
Submission Forms and Guidelines
Please check the service page guidelines for specific Submission Forms and Guidelines that need to be included with your samples.
Submitting Samples/ Shipping Instructions
After setting up a customer account, filling out submission form, and reviewing submission guidelines, you can now submit or send samples. *We require customers to submit electronic Submission Forms!*
In Person Submission
