ABSTRACT
The article reports on the development of a biochip that will shorten the time of genetic testing by Singapore's Institute of Microelectronics, Australia-based BioChip Innovations and Singapore biotech company SiMEMS. The biochip could revolutionise the detection and analysis of deoxyribonucleic acid and ribonucleic acid.
