In this study, we present a novel bead-incorporated centrifugal sample pretreatment microdevice to purify influenza A H3N2 viral RNA. Simple revolution per minute (RPM) control can lead to RNA capture on a bead-bed, and the sequential loading of a washing solution and an elution solution. Tetraethoxy orthosilicate (TEOS)-treated glass microbeads were utilized as a capture matrix. The sample pretreatment microdevice consists of four reservoirs for storing an RNA sample, a washing solution, an… CONTINUE READING
