Meet Nemo

NEMO, a Latin word meaning "no one", was chosen as the name for our first Massively Parallel Deep Sequencer !

    Captain NEMO, Master of the "Deep", was a brilliant scientist from the novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, who used his skills to explore and master the unknown depths.
     Sequencing instruments added later to our core follow that inspiration with names related to exploration and sea monsters.
     NEMO transitioned from a Solexa 1G to a GAIIX Genome Analyzer before being retired in favor of newer, higher-throughput instruments. Please visit the vendor's website for current publications and news about the use of the technology in a variety of applications:
