Modern Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) platforms for genomic applications integrate several biological tasks in a single device. Combination of these processes into a single device minimizes sample loss and contamination problems as well as reducing analysis time and costs. Here we present a study of a microchip platform aimed at analyzing issues arising from the combination of different functions, such as DNA purification from blood, target amplification by PCR and DNA detection in a single silicon-based… CONTINUE READING
