Integrated glass microdevice for nucleic acid purification, loop-mediated isothermal amplification, and online detection.

A microdevice made of glass for genetic analysis has been fabricated, for the first time, for integration of extraction of nucleic acids and loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), followed by online fluorescence detection of amplification products on a single chip. The nucleic acid (NA) extraction region consists of a microfabricated serpentine… CONTINUE READING
