Electrostatic-based DNA Microarray Offers Medical Diagnostics Capabilities

The uses for microspheres continue to grow, a recent article published by UC-Berkley shows how DNA sequencing can be achieved through the use of statically charged microspheres. ? The key breakthrough is that they have been able to achieve a visible result through using the electrostatic repulsion of the microspheres. ? A copy of their announcement follows:

Groves,? and members of his research group Nathan Clack and Khalid Salaita, have published a paper on their technique in the journal Nature Biotechnology, which is now available online. The paper is entitled “Electrostatic readout of DNA microarrays with charged microspheres.
