Why Flongle?


Flongle is an adapter for MinION or GridION that enables direct, real-time DNA sequencing, or cDNA sequencing on smaller, single-use flow cells.

Cost effective

Costing just $90 per flow cell, Flongle is the quickest, most accessible solution for smaller tests and experiments.

Real-time data

Immediate access to data for rapid, actionable results.

On demand

Run single samples on demand instead of multiplexing.

Quality assessment

Rapidly assess sample quality prior to starting a larger sequencing experiment.

Complete genomic and epigenomic characterisation of targeted cancer genes

Researchers utilise CRISPR/Cas9-based enrichment with MinION and Flongle to characterise SNVs, SVs, methylation, and allelic phasing in 10 cancer-associated loci.
