Several generations of GeoChips have been developed, which are classified as generic GeoChips since they contain genes involved in basic functional processes and from a variety of variety of microorganisms, such as archaea, bacteria, and fungi. Such arrays are called Pan- GeoChips to distinguish them from specific microbiome chips, which target specific microbial communities or populations. Currently, HuMiChip, FungChip and PathoChip have been developed or in development.
Human microbiome chip (HuMiChip) is designed to detect and characterize the human microbiome from different body sites, such as oral, skin, vaginal, gut, and airways.
Fungal chip (FungChip) is mainly designed to detect and characterize fungal communities from different habitats or ecosystems.
Pathogen chip (PathoChip) is designed to detect and characterize pathogens and their associated communities in the environment.
