Electrowetting, or digital microfluidics, uses electrical fields to directly manipulate discrete droplets on the surface of a hydrophobically coated printed circuit board (PCB). Sample and reagents are moved in a programmable fashion in the ePlex cartridge to complete all portions of the sample processing from nucleic acid extraction to detection.

A sample is loaded into the ePlex cartridge and the cartridge is placed into the ePlex Instrument. Nucleic acids are extracted and purified from the specimen via magnetic solid phase extraction. PCR is used to create double-stranded DNA, which is treated with exonuclease to create single-stranded DNA in preparation for eSensor detection.

The target DNA is mixed with ferrocene-labeled signal probes that are complementary to the specific targets on the panel. Target DNA hybridizes to its complementary signal probe and capture probes, which are bound to gold-plated electrodes, as shown below in Figure 1. The presence of each target is determined by voltammetry which generates specific electrical signals from the ferrocene-labeled signal probe.
