The patents will be auctioned off at ICAP Ocean Tomo's Spring 2011 Live IP Auction on March 31, 2011 in New York City.

Key Characteristics

The patents disclose the following:

  • An optical reader for genomics, proteomics and other applications involving patterned samples.
  • System using a spatial light modulator, light source and detector for analysis.
  • The system provides for random-access interrogation of probe sites and reference sites.
  • Enabling technology for clinical applications of genotyping and expression microarrays.
  • Compatible with virtually any optical tagging method.
  • Allows real-time monitoring of Bio-Chip hybridization with sample.
  • The reader produces numerical scores directly without need for image processing.
  • This technology eliminates need for complex opto-mechanical scanning mechanisms.
  • Technology allows for highly sensitive detection with wide dynamic range.
  • Facilitates automation of analysis steps for emerging clinical and agricultural assays.
  • Reader system is capable of all analysis steps in real time using a single instrument.
  • Claims include combination of reader with existing DNA-chip synthesis methods.
  • Technology suitable for real-time quality-control during manufacture of bio-chips.
  • The patents have already been cited by many significant industry players, including: GlaxoSmithKline, VIDAR, IDEXX, Sandia Corp, Sharp, Cytonome ST, Pacific Biosciences of California, Plexera, and ASML.

Market Potential

These patents may be of interest in the following areas:

  • The global markets for DNA microarray and lab-on-a-chip (LOAC) systems are expected to reach $2.7 billion and $2.1 billion respectively by 2014.(1)
  • These patents should be of great interest to: Developers of assays for clinical genomics and proteomics, developers of agricultural genomic assays, developers of bio-security instrumentation, clinical instrumentation manufacturers, healthcare service providers, drug developers, DNA-chip manufacturers, biochip developers.
