David Stern, Peter Fiekowsky: Method and apparatus for detection of fluorescently labeled materials. Affymetrix, Townsend and Townsend and Crew, May 20, 1997: US05631734 (351 worldwide citation)

Fluorescently marked targets bind to a substrate 230 synthesized with polymer sequences at known locations. The targets are detected by exposing selected regions of the substrate 230 to light from a light source 100 and detecting the photons from the light fluoresced therefrom, and repeating the ste ...

A sensor for wirelessly determining a physical property within a defined space comprises an electrical resonance and has a high quality factor Q. The quality factor Q is sufficiently high that a signal generated by the sensor can be received outside the defined space. The sensor may optimally have a ...
