In this work we explore the effects of wild-type and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) target specie concentrations, temperature, and the time of hybridization on sensing specificity in two component systems. A finite element method is used to simulate the diffusion of DNA through a microfluidic chamber to the sensing surface of bound oligonucleotide probes where hybridization of DNA is modeled using the corresponding chemical reaction equation assuming low grafting density.
