Executive Summary

Research Products; DNA Chips. Currently, access to DNA microarrays isn't cheap, and its use is restricted mostly to big drug firms and biotechs. Protogene hopes to build cheaper chips with a "printing" approach. Nucleotide bases that make up DNA are spritzed down one at a time on a glass surface to build oligonucleotides. Printing makes it easy to change the chip design at little added cost.
