A research team led by Dr. Christopher Bowman of the University of Colorado has developed an improved method of detecting molecular recognition events for applications that prioritize low cost and minimization of reliance on instrumentation and skilled labor for assay performance and data interpretation. Amplification through photopolymerization provides an easy, inexpensive on-chip amplification technique for DNA microarrays that would minimize protocol steps, yield minimal false positives and false negatives, and function as a robust technique insensitive to environmental conditions or operator variation. Currently, this technology is available for licensing in the fields of cancer detection and detection of STD’s and blood-borne pathogens.
