Paper Abstract

A microheater array device is designed and fabricated using the SwIFT-LiteTM process at Sandia National Laboratories. The device contains 18 individually controllable microheaters in a 3×6 array on a silicon substrate. The microheater array device was designed for use as a biosensor platform with a waveguide for real-time detection of DNA hybridization and melting as well as microfluidics for sample delivery. The design process including modeling, fabrication, and characterization of the heaters and waveguide is detailed. A FRET (florescence resonance energy transfer) system for DNA melting experiments is described, and the associated surface chemistry and microfluidic systems are discussed.
