Apply to the MAP

The MinION™ Access Programme (MAP) is a community-focused access project which started in Spring 2014. The philosophy of the MAP is to enable a broad range of people to explore how the MinION may be useful to them, to contribute to developments in analytical tools and applications and to share their experiences and collaborate. Listening to this community helps Oxford Nanopore provide continuous improvements to our products and support. To apply to join the MAP click here.

Focus On the Experiment,
not the instrument

MinION™, PromethION™ and GridION™ are driven by
nanopore technology, with unique features of real-time
electronic data streaming and scalability of analyses.

MinION™ 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. MinIONs simple workflow is designed to allow the user to perform a range of end-to-end experiments in their own environment.

Learn more about MinION

PromethION™ is a high throughput, tablet-sized instrument for molecular analyses driven by nanopore technology. It is designed to allow the analysis of DNA, RNA, proteins or small molecules.

PromethION™ gives users the choice of how many nanopores are being used for a particular sample; choose from running an individual sample to multiple samples in parallel.

GridION™ 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.

About Oxford Nanopore Technologies

Oxford Nanopore Technologies® is developing a new generation of nanopore-based electronic systems for analysis of single molecules, including DNA, RNA and proteins. The MinION™ device, the PromethION™ and GridION™ systems 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.
