PromethION

The PromethION is a nanopore-based desktop device for high-throughput, high sample-number analysis of biological molecules such as DNA and RNA. The PromethION nanopore sensor consists of arrays of nano-scale holes (nanopores) through which sample solution passes. The electrical current across the nanopore is measured. This system can distinguish between the four standard DNA bases G, A, T and C, and also modified bases. Also to identify target proteins and small molecules, or to distinguish between the enantiomers of ibuprofen.
