Toyohashi University of Technology has applied a microfluidic chip technology to develop a multiplex genetic diagnostic device for the early detection and prevention of crop diseases. The group conducted a gene amplification experiment using cucumber viruses on the diagnostic device, and demonstrated that the rapid multiplex diagnosis can be performed within 1 hour. This diagnostic device is a highly versatile technology that can be used for genetic diagnosis in viral diseases of crops.
