Abstract

A DNA sequencer for biometric applications will be developed. The system will enable rapid and low-cost identification of individuals and kinship verification using a self-contained and portable device. All process steps from DNA extraction to DNA sequencing will be automatically performed within the disposable single-use cartridge. This high-level of functional integration is made possible by Advanced Liquid Logic's digital microfluidic technology which enables precise manipulation of liquid droplets using an array of electrodes formed on an inexpensive printed-circuit-board (PCB). The goals of the Phase I project are to develop detailed use cases and product requirements, identify key technical risks and required research activities and to develop a system architecture and preliminary design.
