Locked Nucleic Acid's or LNA are a new class of bicyclic DNA analogues that have a high affinity and specificity towards complementary nucleic acids. LNA containing oligonucleotides were used to develop a multiplex SNP genotyping assay based entirely on hybridization between capture probe and target. The approach incorporates a polymer microarray platform, photochemistry for immobilization of oligonucleotides onto microarrays, and a dedicated software tool to aid primer and capture probe design for highly multiplex genotyping. Furthermore, these technologies are combined in an integrated microfluidics platform for simple, highly multiplex and robust SNP genotyping.
