Oxford Nanopore Rapid 1D Library Kit
Oxford Nanopore has launched its Rapid 1D library kit, designed for the MinIon sequencing platform. The kit includes a two-step protocol and takes 10 minutes from gDNA to get onto the MinIon. It produces 1D reads. And because it includes a fragmentation step, it produces a range of sequencing lengths shorter than the starting sample. Users have reported from 1kb to 180kb single reads depending on their starting material, the company said.
