I live in Australia. Such services don't exist here.

Oxford Nanopore was considered and rejected on two bases: 1. Cost and short life of reagents. 2. The proprietary nature of the system. Sensors need to be returned to the manufacturer after 12 weeks. i.e. You don't actually own what you pay for.

So far no-one has come up with a system that's usable for the hobbyist. Everything seems to be aimed at batch processing. It's like computing in the 70's.

BTW I don't see this as a problem, I see it as a business opportunity.
