Pretreatment of biological sample for microchip analysis

  title={Pretreatment of biological sample for microchip analysis},
  author={Jerome P. Ferrance and James P. Landers},
A number of analytical processes have been developed on microchips for genomic and proteomic analysis, but reaching the analytical step often requires significant preprocessing before the sample reaches the microchip. Development of microchips that perform these sample processing steps is now underway to take advantage of the speed and cost benefits that microchips provide the analytical processes. In both the genomic and proteomic arenas, proof of principle has been shown for a number of… CONTINUE READING
