About the BT Biochip
The Brain Tumor Biochip [BTChip(TM)] is currently being developed as a collaborative effort by the Center for Bioelectronics, Biosensors and Biochips (C3B). This collaborative research effort involves neurosurgery, molecular genetics, engineering and bioinformatics. The goal of this project is to produce a highly dedicated chip, or suite of chips, that will aid the pathologist in arriving at a molecular diagnostic assessment of excised brain tumors.

The biochip platform has been under development within the C3B since 1999. C3B consortium members, faculty and industry members, pursue non-traditional approaches to DNA hybridization detection in the Advanced DNA Microarray project. Here, they work to implement these basic science and engineering developments in clinically convenient and expeditious diagnostic and prognostic technologies to improve upon brain tumor outcomes.


The C3B has designed, built and maintains a multi-element array biochip platform that implements alternative detection strategies and works towards dedicated biochip applicatons.
