DNA Electronics Partners with Roche to Develop new DNA sequencer

Posted Nov 02 2010 9:30am

DNA Electronics, a fabless semiconductor provider of
solutions for real-time DNA and RNA analysis, announced today that it
has entered a partnership with 454 Life Sciences, a Roche Company. The
collaboration will focus on the development of a low-cost,
high-throughput, long read, high density DNA sequencing system. As
part of the agreement, DNA Electronics has signed a non-exclusive
licence to provide relevant IP from its proprietary semiconductor
technology portfolio to Roche. This technology which enables sensitive
detection of nucleotide incorporation during sequencing will build on
454 Life Sciences’ current pyrosequencing-based platform. The
collaboration leverages DNA Electronics’ unique knowledge of
semiconductor design and expertise in pH-mediated detection of
nucleotide insertions with 454 Life Sciences’ long read sequencing
chemistry to produce a seamless evolution from optical detection to
low-cost, highly scalable electrochemical detection.
