Application: Light detection devices with protective liner and methods related to same (Patent ID: US20230417675A1)

The patent filed by Illumina Inc. describes light detection devices with a reaction structure containing reaction sites generating light emissions. The devices include a device base with light sensors, circuitry, and light guides that block excitation light but allow light emissions to reach the sensors. A protection layer chemically inert to the reaction solution prevents interaction with the circuitry, ensuring accurate detection of light emissions.

The claims detail the device's components, including light guides with filter materials, shield layers, and protection layers made of materials like silicon dioxide. The pH of the reaction solution determines the composition of the protection layer, with options like silicon carbide for low pH solutions. The method involves delivering the reaction solution to reaction sites, illuminating them with excitation light, and detecting the light emissions using the sensors. The devices and methods described in the patent aim to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of light detection in various applications, particularly in biosensors for analyzing reaction solutions containing nucleotides.
