Why GridION?

GridION nanopore sequencing device

Flexible

Run up to five independently addressable Flongle or MinION Flow Cells.

High throughput

As much as 240 Gb of data* — streamed in real time for immediate analysis.

* Theoretical max output when system is run for 72 hours at 400 bases / second. Outputs may vary according to library type, run conditions, etc.

Integrated compute

Powerful onboard data processing and analysis, minimising IT requirements.

Compact

Small footprint, suitable for any lab.

No capital cost

Pay just for consumables.

Specifications

Read length

Nanopores read the length of DNA or RNA presented to them — from short to ultra-long (longest >4 Mb)

Dimensions

Compact benchtop device with integrated compute suitable for any lab

  • Size: W 370 mm, H 220 mm, D 365 mm
  • Weight: 11 kg

240 Gb output*

Up to 48 Gb per MinION Flow Cell / 2.8 Gb per Flongle Flow Cell*

* Theoretical max output when system is run for 72 hours (or 16 hours for Flongle) at 400 bases / second. Outputs may vary according to library type, run conditions, etc.

Suitable applications

  • Larger genomes or projects
  • Whole transcriptomes (direct RNA or cDNA)
  • Large numbers of samples

On demand

Sequence what you need, when you need it

  • Run flow cells individually or together — no more sample batching
  • Mix MinION and Flongle Flow Cells to suit experimental needs
  • Run multiple DNA or RNA experiments at once
  • Barcode for even more samples

Accessible

  • No capital cost
  • Simple plug and play operation
  • Integrated compute — minimal IT infrastructure required

Powerful, integrated compute

Sequencing and analysis in one powerful device

  • Latest generation CPU / GV100 GPU accelerator
  • 64 GB RAM / 4 TB SSD storage
  • Ethernet connectivity
  • Instrument control and data analysis software
