This work demonstrates the design and fabrication of an all cyclo-olefin polymer based microfluidic device capable of capturing magnetic beads and performing electrochemical detection in a series of gold electrodes. The size of chip is of a microscope slide and features six independent measuring cells for multianalyte detection purposes. The aim of this work is to show that rapid prototyping techniques can be instrumental in the development of novel bioassays, particularly in clinical diagnosis applications. We show the successful determination of troponin-T, a cardiac disease marker, in the clinically relevant range of 0.05-1.0 ng/mL. This methodology achieves a detection limit of 0.017 ng/mL in PBS solutions, and is capable of detecting less than 1 ng/mL in a 1:50 human serum dilution.

Lab-on-a-chip can provide convenient and accurate diagnosis tools. In this paper, a plastic-based microfluidic immunosensor chip for the diagnosis of swine flu (H1N1) was developed by immobilizing hemagglutinin antigen on a gold surface using a genetically engineered polypeptide. A fluorescent dye-labeled antibody (Ab) was used for quantifying the concentration of Ab in the immunosensor chip using a fluorescent technique. Read More

This paper describes the assembly of a bioelectrode based on poly(3-aminophenol) and anti-troponin T antibody for recognition of troponin T, which is a specific biomarker for diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. This disease causes loss of cellular components, allowing the output of molecules such as troponin T. This proteic component acts as biomarker for diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction due to their high sensitivity and specificity. Read More
