A pixel-segmented ionization chamber has been designed and built by Torino University and INFN. The detector features a 24 x 24 cm2 active area divided in 1024 independent cylindrical ionization chambers and can be read out in 500 micros without introducing dead time; the digital charge quantum can be adjusted between 100 fC and 800 fC. The sensitive volume(More)
A microspotting tool, consisting of an array of micromachined silicon cantilevers with integrated microfluidic channels is introduced. This spotter, called Bioplume, is able to address on active surfaces and in a time-contact controlled manner picoliter of liquid solutions, leading to arrays of 5 to 20-microm diameter spots. In this paper, this device is(More)
Successful use and reliability of microarray technology is highly dependent on several factors, including surface chemistry parameters and accessibility of cDNA targets to the DNA probes fixed onto the surface. Here, we show that functionalisation of glass slides with homemade dendrimers allow production of more sensitive and reliable DNA microarrays. The(More)
DNA and RNA labeling and detection are key steps in nucleic acid-based technologies, used in medical research and molecular diagnostics. We report here the synthesis, reactivity, and potential of a new type of labeling molecule, m-(N-Biotinoylamino)phenylmethyldiazomethane (m-BioPMDAM), that reacts selectively and efficiently with phosphates in nucleotide(More)
BACKGROUND A critical step in the fabrication of biochips is the controlled placement of probes molecules on solid surfaces. This is currently performed by sequential deposition of probes on a target surface with split or solid pins. In this article, we present a cost-effective procedure namely microcontact printing using stamps, for a parallel deposition(More)
There is an increasing interest to express and study membrane proteins in vitro. New techniques to produce and insert functional membrane proteins into planar lipid bilayers have to be developed. In this work, we produce a tethered lipid bilayer membrane (tBLM) to provide sufficient space for the incorporation of the integral membrane protein (IMP)(More)
Surface Plasmon Resonance imaging (SPRi) is a label free technique typically used to follow biomolecular interactions in real time. SPRi offers the possibility to simultaneously investigate numerous interactions and is dedicated to high throughput analysis. However, precise determination of binding constants between partners is not highly reliable. We(More)
Conversion of a DNA chip to a nanocapsule array was performed by grafting on a liposome an oligonucleotide complementary to an oligonucleotide bound to the array. Each liposome may be loaded by a soluble molecule or may present a hydrophobic or amphiphilic molecule inserted in its wall. To detect liposomes on the chip, we used fluorescent dyes encapsulated(More)
Molecules 2-5 that include in their structure a biotin moiety as detectable unit and differently substituted phenyl diazo functions as reactive group were prepared as reagents for labeling the phosphate group in mono and polynucleotides. These molecules were shown to react selectively and quantitatively with the model nucleotide 3'-UMP. They were used(More)
