Abstract ID:
Immunoassay in a disposable cassette for rapid point of care testing
Send an Inquiry


Current approaches for the diagnosis and monitoring of chronic conditions or the detection of bacteria or viruses rely on immunoassay testing carried out at a central laboratory. This approach means a substantial time lag, delaying the patients course of treatment. The developed point of care device allows rapid screening for up to three components from a single sample. Meaning effective treatment can begin much sooner than is currently possible.??


Users place their sample on a disposable cassette that is combined with the detection system and receive the results a short time later, all in a single homogeneous step. Tailoring the cassette allows the device to be employed for a wide range of applications both in developed and developing countries.
