MICROBIAL IDENTIFICATION AND MANIPULATION OF NANOSCALE BIOMOLECULES

Research output: Patent

Abstract

A method of microbial identification is disclosed. The method includes the steps of assembling dielectrophoretic particles modified with specific DNA probes on a surface thereof in a continuous fluid at a predetermined location in a microchannel to form a particle assembly by a negative dielectrophoretic force and a hydrodynamic force provided by the continuous fluid, narrowing gaps between the dielectrophoretic particles of the particle assembly to enhance the electric field in the gaps between the dielectrophoretic particles, injecting a fluid containing target DNAs of a target microbe into the microchannel at a predetermined flow rate to move the target DNAs toward the particle assembly and generating a positive dielectrophoretic force by the enhanced electric field to attract the target DNAs toward the dielectrophoretic particles of the particle assembly for hybridization with the DNA probes. The present invention also discloses a method of manipulation of nanoscale biomolecules.
