Other Nanopore-based platform out there?
Is anyone familiar with any other nanopore based machines that are being developed? Either in a start-up or academia? What are they called and how do they work? Thanks!

PacBio uses nanopores. Arguably, Illumina's patterned flowcells do as well.

@Brian: In both those cases there are wells (no pores in biological (protein) or chemical (graphene) sense). Zero mode waveguide (ZMV) for PacBio and plain "nanowells" in case of Illumina.

@Shaia_Suki_Wang: Here is a list of known commercialization of nanopore technology (which surprisingly has been around since mid-1990's).

@GenoMax thanks :) Do you have any idea which one of these are still around? I know Genia is now bought by Roche and they are developing the technology. Any others that look promising?
