High Throughput Nucleic Acid and Protein Analysis using Microfluidic Technology, Laurel Provencher, Caliper Life Sciences
Microfabricated devices offer the benefits of assay integration, miniaturization and standardization of processes. Caliper’s LabChip GX instrument platform utilizes microfluidic chips fabricated with an integrated sample injection “sipper”. This design, combined with the appropriate assay reagents and chip design architecture, allows for the high throughput serial separation and analysis of a variety of biomolecules including DNA, RNA and Proteins. Several applications utilizing the platform will be reviewed. These include the use of the GX System to analyze diagnostic multiplex PCR samples, assess RNA quality for downstream gene expression studies and characterize antibodies and other proteins.
