In full scalable formats, Oxford Nanopore sequencing devices allow direct, real-time analysis of short to ultra-long fragments of DNA/RNA. Its possible to target regions of DNA in real time, although the nanopore does not recognize this and continues to read the strand. Researchers then get more of the sequence they are interested in in within a shorter period of time, allowing faster and easier analysis.
