Pint-sized DNA sequencer impresses first users

  title={Pint-sized DNA sequencer impresses first users},
  author={Erika Check Hayden},
In April, Joshua Quick boarded a plane to Guinea with three genetic sequencers packed in his luggage. That fact alone is astonishing: most sequencing machines are much too heavy and delicate to travel as checked baggage in the hold of a commercial airliner. What came next was even more impressive. For 12 days, Quick used these sequencers — called MinIONs — to read the genomes of Ebola viruses from 14 patients in as little as 48 hours after samples were collected.
