Method of using neutrilized DNA (N-DNA) as surface probe for high throughput detection platform
A method of using Neutrilized DNA (N-DNA) as a surface probe for a high throughput detection platform is disclosed. FET and SPRi are used as high throughput detection platforms to demonstrate that the N-DNA surface probe produces good results and enhances detection sensitivity. The N-DNA modifies the charged oxygen ions (O−) on the phosphate backbone through methylation, ethylation, propylation, or alkylation, so that the backbone is not charged after this modification to increase the hybridization efficiency, sensitivity and to make the signal more clear.

Biosensor and Method of Forming Probe on Solid Surface of Biosensor
A biosensors and a method of forming a probe on a solid surface of a biosensor are disclosed and the method includes the following steps. A unit (a nucleotide or an amino acid) capped with a protecting group is covalently bonded on the solid surface of one of a plurality of sensor cells of the biosensor. At least one cycle of the following steps is performed until a desired number of units is formed: irradiating the one of the plurality of sensor cells, so as to remove the protecting group of the unit; and binding a unit capped with the protecting group to the de-protected unit. The one of the plurality of sensor cells is irradiated to remove the protecting group.
