Whole Plasmid Sequencing

A new, low-cost sequencing platform that retains Sanger sequencing's industry-leading turnaround time.

What Is Whole Plasmid Sequencing?

With the help of cutting-edge, long-read sequencing technologies, whole plasmid seq allows for the complete sequencing of a plasmid with accuracy and efficiency. This technique does not require primers. 


Why Is Whole Plasmid Sequencing Important?


With whole plasmid sequencing, research goes beyond the scope of what's possible for Sanger sequencing. Rather than examining a small, specific area of the plasmid, whole plasmid sequencing gets the full picture. This opens the door to additional insights and research opportunities. 

What Can You Do?

Maximize Your Budget

Faster and lower cost than standard primer walking service.

Visualize the Entire Plasmid

Attain accurate and reliable confirmation of plasmid sequences.

New & Improved Technology

Use the newest V14 chemistry and updated R10.4.1 Nanopore flow cell to provide the highest accuracy.
