A method is established to reliably suspend graphene monolayers across glass nanopores as a simple, low cost platform to study ionic transport through graphene membranes. We systematically show that the graphene seals glass nanopore openings with areas ranging from 180 nm2 to 20 m2, allowing detailed measurements of ionic current and transport through graphene. In combination with Raman spectroscopy, we characterise the defects formed in ozone treated graphene, confirming an increase in ionic current flow with defect density. This highlights the potential of our method for studying single molecule sensing and filtration.
