    So.
    ASHG next week.
    Any care to give odds on ONT:
    A) Being present?
    B) Announcing anything? (Announcing no announcements does not count)

    To aid in your handicapping, a certain Clive Brown tweeted:
    Clive G. Brown ‏@Clive_G_Brown 9 Oct

    I've reluctantly rejoined twitter purely so that I can make one tweet - when the appropriate time arises ...
    Also, it appears the Minion is now sporting a new look.

      Hopefully they are not going to wait till illumina's "right to negotiate" expire at end of 2016?

        I'm guessing


        A) 100%
        B) 75/25. Either they release something, or risk losing funding from investors at this point. My bet is that they release the Minion sooner than the Gridion.

          They just raised $64 Million this month: http://nextgenseek.com/2013/10/oxfor...es-64-million/ Clearly investors must have seen something that we do not have access to (yet).

            Maybe they were shown the foils from AGBT 2011 :-)

                Hopefully more than mockups with plexiglass cutouts like last time around? Unless they show something this will start turning into the mother of all vaporware. Given that there are no leaks (and there were leaks before AGBT 2012) I am not too hopeful. Will be glad to eat my words.

                  Apparently position 654 in the exhibition centre at ASHG 2013:

                    ONT put up some new movies in the past 4 days. New looks at the GridION cartridge as well as miRNA sequencing and protein detection.

                      Oxford Nanopore at ASHG

                      Here at the ASHG tradeshow floor setup, was able to spot the Oxford booth. (Attached is a photo, and you can spot the stack of GridIONs on top of the table there.)

                      I heard a rumor yesterday about them but won't engage in any rumor-mongering.

                        Hi,

                        Why not try it ?

                          ONT is the Kool-aid Man busting through the wall:
                          "OH YEAH!"

                          PacBio shares already down 15%.
                          Some extra info at the bottom of the GenomeWeb article

                          The MinIons also appear to be re-usable! So, so cool.

                            You have to send the MinIons in for recycle/reuse, if I remember correctly.

                            The article you linked says "participants can order additional flow cells for $999 a piece". I hope that is just during the trial and that the final cost will not be that high.

                            It would be difficult to keep tens on hand if they are going to cost $1K each.

                              Maybe I am a bit new to the whole ONT discussion.. But from my read of the website, I see they talk about a 'Run till you get sufficient data' workflow. (Kinda enticing )

                              But has there been any mention of just how long each of these can be run and what the final pore density would be per chip for GridION and MinION?

                              Obviously the GridION would be a legit superior, but just how far behind is the MinION in performance (or throughput)? ... Any clues I might have missed so far or new ones from the latest ASHG?

                              Cheers!

                                At the beginning of the article they mention the "flow cells" and "usb device" as being separate entities. Also, on the ONT website, they say you can dry down the flowcells before you send them back, a condition of the early access program. This, to me, seems as though the MinIon can accept single use cartridges.
