|Abstract:||In this study, we present a portable and generic DNA bioassay system based on in situ oligonucleotide synthesis followed by hybridization based detection. The system include two main parts, an oligonucleotide synthesizer and a fluorescence detection system. The oligonucleotide synthesizer is based on microfluidic technology and capable of synthesizing any desired oligonucleotide which can be either used as a primer for PCR based detection (external) or a probe for hybridization based detection (integrated) of a target DNA analyte. The oligonucleotide sequence can be remotely sent to the system. The integrated fluorescence detection system is based on a photodiode to detect Texas Red fluorophore as low as 0.5. fmol. The complete system, integrating the oligonucleotide synthesizer and fluorescence detection system, was successfully used to distinguish DNA from two different bacteria strains. The presented generic portable instrument has the potential to detect any desired DNA target sequence in the field. Potential applications are for homeland security and fast responses to emerging bio-threats. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.|
