Chip Based DNA Synthesis

Online Inquiry

Chip-based DNA synthesis is a cutting-edge technology that enables rapid and high-throughput production of custom DNA sequences. It involves the use of microarrays or "chips" that contain thousands of individual DNA synthesis sites. This advanced method offers precise control over the synthesis process, allowing for the creation of complex DNA constructs with high efficiency and accuracy. Chip-based DNA synthesis has revolutionized the field of molecular biology and has become an essential tool for various applications, including genetic engineering, drug discovery, and diagnostics.

Chip Based DNA Synthesis(RA Hughes, et al.,2017)

Below is a table comparing chip-based DNA synthesis and regular DNA synthesis in terms of differences, advantages, and application fields:

Feature Chip-Based DNA Synthesis Regular DNA Synthesis
Methodology Utilizes microarrays or chips with thousands of reaction sites. Involves traditional, tube-based methods often in solution-phase synthesis.
Speed High-throughput; simultaneous synthesis at multiple sites, faster than traditional methods. Slower process, typically synthesizing one DNA sequence at a time.
Scale Suitable for parallel synthesis, enabling the production of large quantities of DNA fragments simultaneously. Limited in parallel synthesis, usually better suited for smaller scale synthesis.
Error Rates Generally lower error rates due to controlled conditions on the microarray. Higher error rates due to the stepwise nature of the synthesis process.
Flexibility Limited flexibility in terms of sequence changes during synthesis due to the fixed nature of microarrays. High flexibility, allows for modifications and changes at any stage of synthesis.
Cost Initial setup costs can be high, but cost per base pair can be lower for high-throughput applications. Lower initial setup costs, but the overall cost per base pair may be higher for large-scale projects.
Applications Ideal for applications requiring high-throughput DNA synthesis, such as genomics, synthetic biology, and drug discovery. Widely used in various applications including molecular biology research, diagnostics, and therapeutic development.
Customization Limited ability to customize sequences during synthesis; design constraints based on chip layout. Highly customizable, allowing for the synthesis of unique and tailored DNA sequences.
Scalability Well-suited for scaling up production to meet the demands of large-scale projects. May face challenges in scaling up due to the stepwise nature of traditional synthesis methods.
