TechConnect Innovation Program

Next Generation Microarray Copying

University of Freiburg, Badenwurttemberg, Germany

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

We "simply" copy microarrays, starting from DNA microarray we generate DNA or protein microarrays (RNA before first proofs) and we already showed how to copy DNA out of a sequencing chip yielding a DNA-microarray with 110,000 dots and 1,500 bp long DNA.

Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Also hard to say, depends on the application. Vaccine development in 2 weeks, millions, DNA array for research some thousand. It is a microarray copying machine,the value is generated by what you copy.
