Proposal Number: 0911079
Proposal Title: Low-cost and Rapid DNA Sequencer for Biometric Applications
Topic Number: H-SB09.1-001
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Low-Cost and Rapid DNA-based Biometric Device
Organization: Advanced Liquid Logic, Inc.
Address: 615 Davis Drive, Suite 800
PO Box 14025
Research Triangle Park, NC 27709-3169  
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.
