MinIT has now been replaced by the MinION Mk1C, which combines the real-time, portable sequencing of MinION, with powerful integrated compute, a high-resolution touchscreen, and full connectivity.

Discover MinION Mk1C

Eliminating the need for a dedicated laptop for nanopore sequencing with MinION.

MinIT is a companion to the MinION personal DNA/RNA sequencer. It is pre-configured with the software that controls the MinION (MinKNOW), carries out data acquisition and performs basecalling. As a self-contained unit, MinIT can be purchased at the same time as the starter pack, eliminating the need for a dedicated laptop or as a standalone unit to replace the current laptop if an upgrade is needed. Whether working in remote locations or in laboratories, this is a small footprint and easy to implement solution.

MinIT is also designed to work with Flongle, an adaptor for MinION that enables repeat, smaller sequencing tests.

MinIT Specifications:

  • Pre-installed software: Linux OS, MinKNOW, Guppy, EPI2ME
  • Wi-Fi enabled; you can control your experiments using a laptop, tablet or smartphone
