An approach to analyze mismatches using short and specific oligonucleotide probes directly synthesized on bacterial magnetic particles (BMPs) by phosphoramidite methods was exploited. Approximately 126 molecules of 4-mer oligonucleotides/particle were synthesized on BMPs with high reaction efficiencies. Hybridization between FITC-labeled oligonucleotides and chemically synthesized oligonucleotides on BMPs was performed. Perfect matched and mismatched hybridizations were successfully discriminated by using the oligonucleotide probes on BMPs.
