The world's first & only! Great to read of this British innovation from Oxford Nanopore,
You cannot underestimate the the value of extracting and analysing DNA data in situ. Freeing up researchers to perform analyses in their own labs or out in the field and in real time
Joined with other health data sources from wearables, personal health apps to machine sensors in care homes, nursing homes, hospitals this is a shining example of expanding the benefits of healthcare big data analytics.
Oxford Nanopore has developed the worlds first and only nanopore DNA sequencer, the MinION. The MinION is a portable, real time, long-read, low cost device that has been designed to bring easy biological analyses to anyone, whether in scientific research, education or a range of real world applications such as disease/pathogen surveillance, environmental monitoring, food chain surveillance, self-quantification or even microgravity biology.
