Market-leading nanopore DNA sequencing company, and former Begbroke Science Park tenant, Oxford Nanopore Technologies announces a further £35m in investment funding.

The prospects for nanopore based sequencing in general are clearly considered strong, with the news of a further £35 million in investment funding for the UK-based market leader Oxford Nanopore Technologies. This raises the total investment in the original nanopore-based next-generation DNA sequencing company since 2005 to £180 million. Oxford Nanopore plans to use the funding to invest in infrastructure for its MiniIon Nanopore sequencer, including production and logistics, customer support, and application development. The funding will also be used for R&D in order to develop nanopore sensing products for molecules other than DNA.
