Evonetix – DNA synthesis chip
For more than three decades DNA has been synthesized by constructing individual strands through sequential chemical addition of bases and then combining them to create longer, double-stranded DNA
MEMS and microfluidic processing
This new proprietary approach utilizes a silicon chip, made by MEMS processing, that integrates physics with biology, and controls the synthesis of DNA at many thousands of independently controlled reaction sites or ‘pixels’ on the chip surface in a highly parallel fashion.
The key innovation in this approach is the realization of a thermal insulator that provides a controlled, anisotropic thermal resistance.
