Current use of gene chip requires various tedious steps such as purification of DNA or RNA from tissues, amplification of gene sequences and purification, hybridization, and scanning. This often requires expensive chemicals, highly trained technicians, time and effort.

Our center is interested in integration of all these steps such that one can simply add a minute amount of blood sample on to a gene chip for diagnosis of diseases (see the diagram below).

We are also using the surface technology which allows identification of minute changes in gene sequences with high fidelity.

Note also that this technology does not involve elaborate lab-on-a-chip technology. Our technology has potential for automation of diagnosis by gene chip.

Once such a technology is established, we want to develop chips for various infections diseases, cancer, etc.
