Paper Abstract

One of the challenges of future miniaturized biochemical analysis laboratories is manipulation of sub-(mu) L samples on a macro-scale in a parallel fashion. Today's commercially available sample handling systems for biochemical analysis are limited to wide center-to-center spacing (3.0 mm) and cannot handle sample volumes less than approximately 0.5 (mu) L. In addition, these systems are able to dispense only 6 to 12 pipettes at one time. The technique presented in this work addresses these problems by using micromachined pipette arrays for sample manipulation.
