Abstract
A new technology is introduced for developing potentially low cost, high throughput DNA sequence analysis. This approach utilizes novel bioelectronic genosensor devices to rapidly detect hybridization events across a DNA probe array. Detection of DNA probe/target hybridization has been achieved by two electronic methods. The first method utilizes a permittivity chip which interrogates the miniature test fixtures with a low voltage alternating electric field. The second method, which is the emphasis of this paper, utilizes a charge- coupled device (CCD) to detect the hybridization of appropriately tagged (radioisotope, fluorescent, or chemiluminescent labels) target DNA to an array of DNA probes immobilized above the pixels. Such direct electronic-biologic coupling is shown to provide a tenfold sensitivity improvement over conventional lens-based detection systems.
