Microarrays, also calledbiochip, is a technique that allows tens, hundreds or thousands of tests in a single experiment.For this, the size of the “reaction tube” is miniaturized in the form of a “well” typically less than 0.1 mm in diameter.These units are arranged in a two-dimensional surface of glass or silicon.Each assay is designed to recognize a DNA, mRNA or protein sequence.A special reader is able to locate this recognition and the information is processed by software andbioinformaticstechniques.
