PromethION in action, in labs around the worldVideo
The PromethION is Oxford Nanopore Technologies' largest sequencing device, capable of delivering many terabases of data, in real time, from a single run. Hear how teams across a broad range of applications, based in labs all over the world — US (UCSF, UCD, JCVI and UCSC), China (GrandOmics and Biomarker) and Europe (KeyGene, Genescope and UMC Utrecht) — are using PromethION in their work.
Watch this video to learn about the highlights of the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap GC-MS Technology.
