Identification of DNA Bases Without Fluorescent Tags

Illumina and Oxford Nanopore Technologies have made a strategic alliance in which Illumina will market exclusively BASETM technology products developed by Oxford Nanopore for the DNA sequencing. These sequencing systems use protein nanopores coupled with a processive enzyme.

The system developed by the spin-out of the University of Oxford, Oxford Nanopore, is designed for the electric identification of DNA bases at the molecular level, without the need for fluorescent labels.
