We have developed a novel cost-effective procedure, namely 'chemical nanoprinting', for oligonucleotide or cDNA chips manufacture. In this thermo-controlled process, the oligonucleotides, covalently attached to a highly loaded 'master-chip' through disulfide bonds, are chemically transferred to the acrylamide layer mounted on a 'print-chip'. It is demonstrated here that multiple identical print-chips can be produced from a single master-chip. This duplication process is a few hundreds of times faster than any existing methods and the speed of process and cost incurred are independent of the scale of the DNA chips.
