1D squared kit available in the store: boost accuracy, simple prep
Tue 9th May 2017
1D2 is a new method of nanopore sequencing: a strand of DNA is sequenced, followed by the complementary strand. It gives a boost in accuracy over the 1D method but retains the simplicity of library preparation. 1D2 is now available at the nanopore store.
At the time of release, raw accuracy from internal experiments is in this range (see chart below), with early results issued on social media from the nanopore community reflecting these results. Oxford Nanopore aims to increase this to 99%, with onwards impact on consensus accuracy.
