Immunoassay in a disposable cassette for rapid point of care testing...
Email me a copy of this message


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.
