Plate of chips
Alan Tham, an engineer of Attogenix Biosystems, holds up samples of newly-developed AttoChips on Thursday in Singapore. The government-funded biotechnology research company said it has developed a penny-sized plastic chip that analyzes DNA samples for genes and viruses and carries out multiple tests simultaneously to identify the different strains of the dengue-fever virus. The company hopes to market the chip as a cost-saver to developing countries in tropical Southeast Asia, such as Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, where dengue cases have been rising in recent months, killing dozens of people.Aug 06, 2005
