This paper intends to provide a brief survey of the most advanced implementations of molecular analysis tools based on microtechnologies and to discuss a new approach for the development of integrated molecular analysis. The technique presented hereafter combine a labelfree method for molecular characterization based on UV absorbance and two technologies of silicon photodetectors addressed to fulfill the requirements of different applications.
