Resistors Ensure Accurate DNA Analysis

From paternity tests to forensic science applications, microfluidic capillary electrophoresis (micro-CE) equipment is most commonly used to analyze DNA in medical applications. The technology separates molecules based on size, and resulting data is organized depending on the purpose of the test. To support this application, Ohmcraft worked closely with its micro-CE customers to develop completely customized resistor networks to meet their design specifications, which required a distinct form factor.

 

The company’s fine line, thick film technology provides a high level of performance and stability in custom resistor networks. The usual hybrid technologies for manufacturing resistors depend upon composite materials that have limitations. Traditional thick-film methods severely limit performance characteristics and thin-film methods are limited in attainable ohmic values. Ohmcraft’s Micropenned resistors offer the best characteristics of both methods. The combination of long line, high-aspect ratio, and higher conductivity film, gives Ohmcraft resistors unprecedented design efficiency, versatility, linearity, stability and low noise.

In Conversation with Antonio Neri, President & CEO – Hewlett Packard Enterprise & Salil Parekh, CEO – Infosys

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.

 

The development of Micro-CE technology has led to rapid advancements in DNA testing and analysis. Because these test results are often used to make medical decisions, it is crucial that they are accurate. Reliability of the equipment is equally critical, as malfunctions can result in the loss or damage of a sample, which is particularly problematic if only a limited number of samples exist.
