A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11857973B2) discloses a gene sequencing reaction device designed to facilitate gene sequencing reactions efficiently. The device comprises a supporting platform with a dipping container for holding a chemical reagent, a temperature control apparatus, a transfer apparatus for inserting or pulling out a sequencing chip, and a chip holding apparatus with one or more chip mounting positions. The chip holding apparatus includes a chip framework with a jaw fitting opening for clamping the chip framework, allowing movement of the sequencing chip. Additionally, the device may include multiple dipping containers, each with isolated dipping reaction areas, an overflow port, a chip supplying storage apparatus, a chip unloading storage apparatus, a container cover to prevent evaporation of the chemical reagent, and a controller for temperature control and sequencing chip dipping time and sequence.

Furthermore, the gene sequencing reaction device may feature a chip mounting opening with a through opening for mounting the sequencing chip, a hydrophobic surface on the chip framework, a tapered lower end of the chip framework, a protective cover for the dipping container, an air blowing apparatus to remove chemical reagent, and a controller for temperature control and sequencing chip dipping time and sequence. The device aims to streamline the gene sequencing process by providing a comprehensive solution for handling sequencing chips efficiently, ensuring accurate and reliable results in gene sequencing reactions.
