Current technologies for DNA assays are limited to the micrometre scale, increasing the footprint required for full genome screening.
Patterning of stable chemicals as binding/grafting sites for biomolecules at the nanometre scale. This technology benefits from extended shelf-life, high throughput and low cost. Biomolecules are grafted to the pattern when the assay is performed. Biomolecule targets include proteins and DNA.
