MinIONTM is a portable device for molecular analyses that is
driven by nanopore technology. It is adaptable for the analysis of
DNA, RNA, proteins or small molecules. MinION’s simple workflow is
designed to allow the user to perform a range of end-to-end experiments
in their own environment.
GridIONTM is a larger system for molecular analyses that is driven
by nanopore technology. It is adaptable for the analysis of DNA,
RNA proteins or small molecules. GridION is scalable and can be
clustered, allowing greater versatility of workflows and balancing
of multiple experiments.
Oxford Nanopore Technologies® is developing a new generation of nanopore-based electronic systems for analysis of single molecules, including DNA, RNA and proteins. The GridION™ system and miniaturised MinION™ device are designed to provide novel qualities in molecular sensing such as real-time data streaming, improved simplicity, efficiency and scalability of workflows and direct analysis of the molecule of interest. The devices may be used in scientific research, personalised medicine, crop science, security and defence and environmental applications. Supported by a broad patent portfolio, the Oxford Nanopore pipeline includes multiple generations of nanopore-based sensing technologies, including those based on both biological and solid-state nanopores.
