Planar High-Speed Molecule Sequencer
WARF: P180156US01

Inventors: Robert Blick, Abhishek Bhat, Paul Gwozdz

The Invention
A molecule sequencer uses a planar nanochannel for aligning molecules to flow past impedance interrogation electrodes mounted across the channel for rapid sequencing. The electrodes may be fixed to the channel walls to provide improved registration by co-fabrication with the channel. Extended channel length over normally used nanopores can provide improved control of longer molecules and allow parallel sequencers to be readily fabricated on a single substrate.
