Capillary Electrophoresis Based on the Nucleic Acid Detection in the Application of Human Disease Diagnosis by Dong-sheng Lian And Shu-jin Zhao

As the post-genome era comes, one of the trends of future medical developments is the timely diagnosis and prevention of diseases. The analysis of nucleic acid can diagnose the diseases accurately at gene level which can eliminate all kinds of false positive and negative results from phenotype and prescribe the individual prevention or therapy. As a result, a high-throughput test tool is needed for the analyses of a large number of clinical nucleic acid samples. Capillary electrophoresis (CE) has the advantages of high-efficiency, high-speed, microscale, automation, high-throughput, and cleanliness which can meet the medical requirements that mass data and a large number of samples need to be analyzed, leading CE to be the new technology considered for clinical disease diagnosis. This review puts the focus on the application of CE in clinical disease diagnosis. Meanwhile, it also gives a brief introduction of the drawbacks and future development of CE.
