Molecular Electronics Chip With 100 Million DNA Reading Devices

Next Big FutureĀ  December 30, 2019
Utilizing advances in semiconductor technology, nano-fabrication and bio-sensors, a company in America has created standard CMOS chips that directly integrate sensor molecules into the CMOS integrated circuits. The current chip is designed to read DNA; future chips will be designed for protein detection and other diverse bio-sensing applications. It reduces whole genome sequencing from days to minutes, through direct electrical sensing delivered at the speed of natural DNA synthesis. Using a single molecule workflow eliminates the time and complexity of sample preparation, delivering ultimate simplicity, speed and lower costs. This also improves the data quality by eliminating prep-related errors and biases and enabling ultra-long read lengths. It provides unprecedented economics, precision, portability, and scalability…read more.
