Since 2014 BaseClear is working with the innovative Nanopore sequencing technology of Oxford Nanopore Technologies. In 2017 BaseClear has launched nanopore sequencing as an official service, and invites researchers from all over the world to submit genomics projects for rapid-turnaround, ultra-long read length, direct nanopore sequencing.

Oxford Nanopore certified service provider

BaseClear was the first service provider to complete the Oxford Nanopore certification process, that enables provision of nanopore sequencing as a service (see also BaseClear is deeply experienced with nanopore sequencing, having used the innovative technology as one of the early adopters. BaseClear has participated in projects such as the sequencing of complex microbial genomes and the ultra-large tulip genome, which is 11 times larger than the human genome. BaseClear has also developed custom solutions that benefit from the real-time analysis and long read length.

BaseClear works with researchers from all over the world and offers complete genomics services including sampling, extraction, library preparation to sequencing and analysis. BaseClear also provides consultancy and support for project design, particularly useful if you are new to Oxford Nanopore technology.


Nanopore sequencing technology is particularly useful for:

New applications are in constant and rapid development, i.e. direct RNA sequencing, DNA modification analysis, targeted sequencing.

Oxford Nanopore technology provides real-time, direct sequencing of DNA and RNA.  Read lengths are determined by preparation; the longest single read using nanopore sequencing is now approaching 1 Mb. This has particular benefits when assembling large, complex genomes, resolving structural variation or wishing to explore large metagenomic communities.
