Oxford Nanopore offers a range of options for converting your original biological sample to a form ready for application into a nanopore sensing device.
Oxford Nanopore has developed VolTRAX – a small device designed to perform library preparation automatically, so that a user can get a biological sample ready for analysis, hands free.
VolTRAX is designed to automate sample prep for nanopore analyses.
The consumable VolTRAX cartridge is used with a small USB powered device.
VolTRAX will be first be released in the VolTRAX Introduction Programme to members of the nanopore community who are currently using nanopore technology. To start using the technology and join the community, read more.
The VolTRAX is designed to allow users to add sample and reagents to the device and then walk away while they are prepared for nanopore sequencing. In VolTRAX, liquids are moved around the cartridge in a path programmed by software, performing individual reactions in sequence. Read more at this poster
A range of traditional library preparation kits are also currently available to MinION users.
