Diagnosis of diseases with biochip http://gyti.techpedia.in/files/GYTI-BOOK-color.pdf


Much research has been ongoing to develop diagnostic biochips that can be used to efficiently analyze least amount of sample in a short period of time. The available devices do not have many integrated sensors, and have issues like cross contamination, unstable temperature of the substrate/reagents, non re-usability of the microchips etc. The present invention relates to a lab-on-a-chip (LOC) device and provides an Electrolyte Insulator Semiconductor (EIS) based Microfluidic Immunosensor, which measures the changes in surface potential between the electrolyte (desired analyte) and the sensing insulator by a shift in capacitance– voltage (C–V) curves. This shift is a direct representation of sensitivity of the device from which quantification of a particular disease marker (present in the sample) can be obtained. This device provides a reliable detection of different biomarkers, specifically cancer, and for other diseases, including a possibility to use for multianalyte detection of test samples. After successful lab/clinical trials, this miniaturized, integrated EIS Microfludic Immunosensor would enable a substantial cost reduction paving the way for a range of new applications.
