Genes are the blueprints of life. A human being is estimated to have 25,000 types of genes. DNA CHIP (also called DNA Microarray) is a tool that studies the state of these large numbers of genes simultaneously to allow for examining or predicting of the body's mechanisms and a source and condition of illness. By fully making use of originally developed technologies, Toray's DNA CHIP, 3D-Gene®, can detect gene information with a higher sensitivity than those of traditional technologies. Toray is significantly contributing to the actualization of tailor-made medical treatments by shedding light on the new life phenomenon as well as making it possible to gain more gene information from the least amount of samples through the production of the DNA CHIP for research purposes.
