Illustration of photochemical modification of cBN film, subsequent attachment of amine-modified DNA probes and hybridization with FAM-labeled DNA targets. The DNA probes were immobilized on the surface by treating the amine-terminated cBN surface in a 2.5% glutaraldehyde solution for and reacting with of amine-modified DNA, which was covered with a slip. Hybridization was accomplished by incubating the above sample at in a humidity chamber for and followed by an exposure to of FAM-labeled target DNA, covered with a slip, and hybridization at in a humidity chamber for .
