GridION X5 is a compact benchtop system designed to run and analyse up to five MinION Flow Cells. It is ideal for labs with multiple projects that need the advantages of nanopore sequencing: simple library preparation, real-time analysis and new biological insights from long reads. The GridION X5 also allows users to offer nanopore sequencing as a service.
The GridION X5 allows up to five experiments to be run concurrently or individually; users may choose to use as much or as little of this total resource as they need at any one time. The current chemistry and software release enables generation of up to 150 Gb of data during a GridION X5 run and the compute module is able to analyse that data in real time.
Using the same core technology as the MinION and PromethION, the GridION X5 offers real-time, long-read, high-fidelity DNA and RNA sequencing.
