Delivering the future of genomic pathogen surveillance

This white paper reviews how nanopore sequencing overcomes the challenges associated with traditional sequencing technologies to deliver comprehensive, affordable, and real-time analysis of human and animal pathogens. Case studies reveal how researchers around the world are now deploying nanopore sequencing to better identify, characterise, and track a range of pathogens to help minimise the threat and impact of disease outbreaks.

Serious infectious disease outbreaks have been an ever-present threat throughout human history and, driven by factors such as increasing globalisation, population growth, urbanisation, and climate change, that threat is increasing. 

In this white paper, you will:

  • Learn about the importance of genomic pathogen surveillance
  • Discover the limitations of traditional genomic analysis technologies
  • See how nanopore sequencing has delivered rapid, affordable, and informative results for a range of pathogen outbreaks, including SARS-CoV-2, Zika, Ebola, and many more
  • Read customer case studies on monkeypox virus, poliovirus, and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) profiling
