New microchip technology performs 1,000 chemical reactions at once

In an attempt to miniaturize and speed up testing of large numbers of chemical reactions for potential drug candidates, scientists at UCLA have developed a new microfluidic device capable of performing 1,000 simultaneous in situ click chemistry reactions, which can identify chemicals that bind to proteins. Because enzyme reagents required for in situ click reactions can be costly, the researchers believe their approach may save laboratories money, in addition to time and effort.
