Infineon Technologies announced availability of "Flow-Thru" biochips and a matching complete analysis system. Infineon markets the products with its US partner company, MetriGenix. The biochips are miniaturised sample substrates made of silicon, on which hundreds of simultaneous biomolecular tests can be performed using optical evaluation techniques. The Infineon biochip uses a three-dimensional micro-array - a network of fine micro-channels that run between the upper and the lower side of the chip. In contrast, traditional planar biochips on glass substrates have a two-dimensional sensor surface. Analysis using the Flow-Thru Chip (FTC) is a multi-step process. The micro-channels of the biochip are prepared by MetriGenix, which populates the chip with segments of known genes that fix themselves on the walls of the micro-channels. Then the gene sample to be analysed is repeatedly pumped back and forth through the pores in the Flow-Thru technique. This causes matching genes of the sample to bind with known genes on the pore wall. A luminescent dye is added in another step, binding with the matched gene segments. The dye emits light that is captured by a CCD (charge coupled device) camera and forwarded to a computer.
