  • Patent number: 9575323
    Abstract: The present invention provides a biochip image-forming system including a case having a cavity, an optical assembly, a chip-holding assembly and an electricity storage assembly. The cavity communicates with a chip inlet for a biochip to be inserted into the cavity through the chip inlet and an image outlet for an image of the biochip to be outputted from the cavity via the image outlet. The optical assembly is received in the cavity and aligned with the image outlet for forming the image of the biochip. The chip-holding assembly is received in the cavity and arranged between the optical assembly and a heating component. The chip-holding assembly aligns with the chip inlet for the biochip to be placed thereon. The electricity storage assembly is electrically connected with the optical assembly and the heating component. As such, a biochip can be analyzed conveniently using said biochip image-forming system.
