Transformational products for research, human health and safety, and the environment
Oxford Nanopore's sensing system offers a new generation of direct, electronic analysis of single molecules. Capable of exquisite specificity and sensitivity, digital readouts, miniaturisation or industrial-scale installations, real-time analysis and low-cost systems, this is a technology designed to truly disrupt science and medicine.

The Oxford Nanopore technology platform is designed so that the nanopore element can be adapted for the analysis of a variety of target analytes including DNA, RNAmiRNA and proteins, in either the GridION™ system or the miniaturised MinION™ device. This applies to analyses of any species including plant, animal or small organisms. For each analyte there are a range of scientific applications; for example when sequencing DNA, the technology may be used for applications including resequencing, de novo sequencing, epigenetics and much more.

The hardware can be scaled according to user need, and the instrument may be deployed in a number of environments. The system may therefore be used to address a broad variety of scientific questions in the fields of Life Science Research. As knowledge about the genome and proteome increases this information will contribute to further developments in personalised medicine, drug development and diagnostics.
