A sexually transmitted disease is an illness that has a high probability of transmission between humans or animals who have sexual contact. Our research is based on the development of a microbiochip for Neisseria gonorrhoeae (N.G.). In our study, we have employed fusion technology between microarray technology and a microfluidic system for quantitative analysis of N.G. A great deal of attention has been focused on electrochemical detection by using a DNA probe, which is a specific DNA sequence

The microbiochip consisted of two electrode systems and microchannel based PDMS. Our detection principles use electrochemical detection. Consequently, our microbiochip detected 5 ng/mL of N.G. and the correlation rate was over 0.95. We can produce a microbiochip, which could bind to a DNA probe and detect sample of interest. We expect that our electrobiochemical chip will be used for the development of a portable device.
