London: Researchers have developed a DNA measurement platform that promises to improve a range of genetic diagnostics and screenings where precise measurement is crucial.The technology by UBC researchers could also help in the early detection of cancer, prenatal diagnostics, the detection of pathogens in food products, and the analysis of single cell gene expression.The new digital polymerase chain reaction (PCR) device uses liquid surface tension, rather than systems of microscopic valves, to partition DNA samples into arrays of 1,000,000 chambers or more.
The description of the megapixel platform has been published in Nature Methods .ANI
