CombiMatrix and Washington University to Create Libraries on Chips

NEW YORK, Jan. 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis will use microarrays from CombiMatrix, a subsidiary of Acacia Research, to develop chip-based molecular libraries, Acacia said today.

 

The research, led by Kevin Moeller, is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. Moeller and his colleagues plan to synthesize libraries of non-nucleic acid molecules on CombiMatrix's NanoArrays.

 

CombiMatrix's platform uses electrochemically and independently addressable microelectrodes on semiconductor chips.
