Nanopore Reader 10 MHz

The world’s first 10 MHz amplifier for nanopore research.
It is a compact and integrated read-out device with reusable flow-cells for high bandwidth measurements of solid state nanopores and nanoparticle detection.

Why to choose the Nanopore Reader 10 MHz?

Bandwidth – The high bandwidth allows to investigate electrophysiological events lasting less than hundreds of nanoseconds

Versatile – The amplifier is suitable for experimental activities such as, DNA translocation, single molecule detection or channel recordings…

User friendly – Tools free, just insert the flow cell in the device

They say about us – “… the full 10 MHz bandwidth and 40 Msps sampling rate, combined with ±100nA of dynamic range, is what sets this instrument apart from others as it offers an unprecedented opportunity to study details of fast biomolecular translocations using the entire range of solidstate nanopore chips”

Flow Cell (for Solid State Nanopores) – The nanopore containing chip fits in a 5×5 mm² cavity and is secured with silicone rubber gaskets. Both chambers are accessible and can be filled with low volumes (10 μl – 60 μl of electrolyte solution). The nanopore chip can be rapidly changed without tools and the flow cell is reusable.

  • Flowcell materials: Standard PMMA, Delrin, or Teflon
  • Nanopore Chip not included
  • Chip thickness*: 200 µm

*By choosing the proper gasket with the appropriate thickness (thicker Chip needs thinner gaskets), you can place nanopore chips of any thickness in this flow cell (both square or round Chips).
