Product Information
Product Saphyr Chips
Catalog Number(s) 20440 Saphyr Chip G3.3
20366 Saphyr Chip G2.3
20367 Saphyr Chip G2.2
20319 Saphyr Chip G1.2

Each Bionano Saphyr Chip contains hundreds of thousands of parallel nanochannels, each of which is just wide enough to allow a single linearized DNA molecule to travel through. Long, labeled DNA molecules are linearized and immobilized in the nanochannels, where they are directly imaged by the Saphyr instrument.

Saphyr Chip G3.3 is our most recent design for the Saphyr Chip. Combined with the new G3 chip clip and plugs for enhanced evaporation control, each of its 3 flowcells can collect a maximum of 5,000 Gbp of throughput. Each of the 3 flowcells is independent of the others and can be loaded with a distinct sample.

Saphyr Chips G2.3 and G2.2 contain three and two flowcells each, respectively. These are our previous generation Saphyr chips, used with the Gen 2 chip clip and plugs. These chips can collect a maximum throughput of 5,000 Gbp per flowcell.

The Saphyr Chip G1.2 was our first generation Saphyr chip and contains two flowcells. Combined with the Gen 1 chip clip, this chip is used only with the Gen 1 Saphyr System (PN 60239). These chips can collect a maximum throughput of 1,300 Gbp per flowcell.

Compute Servers

Product Information
Product Compute Servers
Catalog Number(s) 80013 Saphyr Compute Server
80014 Bionano Compute Server

The Saphyr Compute Server offers cluster-like performance in an affordable, compact solution, and comes pre-installed with our Bionano Solve compute software. Bionano Solve performs all post-run analysis jobs, including automated de novo assembly, rare variant analysis, variant annotation, copy number calling, hybrid scaffolding, etc. A simple web-based interface enables integration into virtually any network setup.

The Bionano Compute Server is a standalone, secondary compute server that works in parallel with the Saphyr Compute Server. Additional Bionano Compute Servers can be added for increased data processing power.
