PromethION: nanopore sequencer for high-throughput and long read high-fidelity DNA and RNA sequencing allowing fast decoding of (epi)genomes and (epi)transcriptomes (PromethION)

The PromethION (Oxford Nanopore) is a standalone benchtop instrument designed for highthroughput, high-sample number nanopore sequencing. This third generation sequencing technology allows unprecedented opportunities such as direct epitranscriptome analysis, sequencing of extremely long reads and real-time data analysis. This groundbreaking technology differs from the
mostly used second generation short-read sequencing and allows challenging and innovative research in Life Sciences.
