nanopore sequencing

The first version of the platform, which the company submitted for Emergency Use Authorization to the US FDA last week, analyzes RNA extracted from a swab.

Combining Ubiquitome's handheld PCR device and Oxford Nanopore's sequencer may enable a single person to screen 500 samples and obtain 24 whole genome sequences per day.

The researchers said a functional investigation of the virus' unknown transcripts and RNA modifications will elucidate its life cycle and pathogenicity.

A nationwide, multi-agency effort to sequence the virus causing COVID-19 is a logistical nightmare, but experts say the UK is well situated to succeed.

The consortium, which spans more than a dozen UK cities, will sequence patient samples to understand the spread and evolution of the novel coronavirus.

The Delaware jury said Oxford Nanopore had infringed three patents, but also found that they were invalid, mostly because they were not enabled.

The method uses nanopore sequencing to analyze short cell-free DNA fragments from blood, providing results in as little as six hours.
