Nanopore technology

The driver behind sequencing 4.0

Our expertise in nanopore technology

Leveraging its widely acclaimed CMOS processing expertise and infrastructure, imec develops and manufactures silicon nanopore FETS for single-molecule sensing (DNA, RNA, proteins).

Integrate our nanopore technology to enable high-throughput, label-free DNA sequencing.  Combine solid-state nanopores with photonic waveguides to achieve extremely high sensitivity.

Key benefits:

  • highly sensitive
  • higher throughput at lower cost
  • possibility of longer reads
  • label-free, minimal sample prep
  • highly integrated, robust and reliable
