In the same way that people have different faces and body shapes, each persons genes are also unique.Genetic differences determine our level of immunity to diseases,the efficacy of medical treatment and the probabilityo f side effects. Determining such differences before beginning treatment allows the selection of optimal drugs and medical courses of action for each individual ( an approach known as personalized medical treatment ). DNA chips represent a tool that enables the investigation of genetic differences.However, current DNA analysis is a time-consuming process involving a range of expensive equipment whose use requires specialized knowledge. Weh ave developed an original electrochemical DNA chip that represents a precise and easy-to-operate DNA analysis system, and are now promoting the practical use of such chips in medical fields as well as in a multitude of other areas where DNA analysis is required.

Previously, separate pieces of equipment were used to conduct each stage of the DNA analysis process. Toshiba has now incorporated the whole process into a single unit featuring a refined, compact design, allowing a short analysis time through the use of an original electrochemical method.

Rather than investigating hundreds or thousands of genes exhaustively, Toshiba's Genelyzer chip narrows down and analyzes the several dozen pieces of DNA information necessary. Limiting the amount of DNA information to be investigated for each test category optimizes test conditions and facilitates analysis with a higher level of precision.
