New assay for point of care applications

Published: 2014-07-09

In an article published in Clinical Chemistry Helene Andersson Svahns group at SciLifeLab/KTH Royal Institute of Technology present a new, inexpensive and rapid tool that can detect at least 1 480 molecular biomarkers at the same time. It is a paper based vertical flow microarray assay that could find use in future point of care affinity proteomic applications, for instance in the fields of autoimmunity, allergy, infection or cancer diagnostics.
