Giant Magneto-resistance (GMR) has been used in various biomedical fields. Compared with traditional optical detection, GMR sensors have been proven to be more sensitive and suitable for the transducers of future integrated lab-on-chip systems. Magnetic particles (MPs) are widely used as tags for labeling biomaterials such as proteins, DNA/RNA and cells in bioassay. Superior to fluorescence probe, MPs do not dacay in the process of storage and detection, and a single MP can be detected and actuated by highly sensitive GMR sensors, as the advantage of stabilization and sensitivity.
Even though passive biochip is widely applied in POC immunoassay system now, its natural disadvantages still became an universal issue to the world, such as subjective disturbances; difficult stadardization; uncontrollable biochemical reaction processes; low efficiency; poor reproducibility and inaccuracy. In contrast, m16's active biochip with microfluidic technology, utilizes physical forces and fields that are directly applied during chip fabrication. With its features of rapidity, high-efficiency and automtion, m16 achieves the construction of real lab-on-a-chip with great reproducibility and accuracy of the results.
