  • Publication number: 20210215607
    Abstract: Provided herein are cartridges, packaged devices, and systems for improved nucleic acid sequencing. The cartridges, devices, and systems include a highly multiplexed optical chip comprising a plurality of nanoscale reaction regions that is configured to perform and report nucleic acid sequencing reactions. The chips are, in some embodiments, packaged for use in analytical nucleic acid sequencing reactions. The chips may be attached to a printed circuit board, may be surrounded by a protective enclosure, may include a flow cell, and may include optical features to minimize or block photobleaching of the sequencing reagents and background fluorescent signals. Also provided are analytical systems for nucleic acid sequencing that comprise the disclosed cartridges and packaged devices.
