Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2018034807A1] The present invention is directed to methods and compositions for optically based polynucleotide analysis using nanopores wherein quenching agents are used to reduce or eliminate spurious optical signals generated by polynucleotide labels outside of detection zones. In some embodiments, the invention may be implemented with the following steps: translocating a polynucleotide through a nanopore, wherein different kinds of nucleotides of the polynucleotide are labeled with different flurorescent labels that generate distinguishable fluorescent signals and wherein the nanopore constrains the nucleotides to move single file through a detection zone; exciting the fluorescent labels; quenching fluorescent signals from excited fluorescent labels outside of the detection zone using one or more non-fluorescent quenching agents; detecting fluorescent signals emitted from the fluorescent labels as the fluorescent labels pass through the detection zone; and determining a sequence of nucleotides from the detected fluorescent signals.
