Hydrodynamic shearing of DNA in a polymeric microfluidic device

Author affiliations

Abstract

With the advent of next-generation sequencing (NGS) systems and the associated high throughput they afford, the input to these machines requires manageable lengths of fragments (∼1000 bp) produced from chromosomal DNAs. Therefore, it is critical to develop devices that can shear DNA in a controlled fashion. We report a polymer-based microfluidic device that establishes an efficient and inexpensive platform with performance comparable to a commercially available bench-top system.
