This review examines the current state of the art lab-on-a-chip and microfluidic based biosensor technologies used in the detection of cardiac biomarkers. The determination and quantification of blood based, cardiac biomarkers are crucial in the triage and management of a range of cardiac related conditions, where time delay has a major impact on short and longer-term outcomes of a patient. The design and manufacturing of biomarker detection systems are multi-disciplinary in nature and require researchers to have knowledge of both life sciences and engineering for the full potential of this field to be realised. This review will therefore provide a comprehensive overview of chip based immunosensing technology as applied to cardiac biomarker detection, while discussing the potential suitability and limitations of each configuration for incorporation within a clinical diagnostics device suitable for point-of-care applications.

Name: Lab on a chip
In this study, we have developed a label-free immunosensor with the variation of resonance frequency (Δf) of a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) as readout signal for ultrasensitive detection of Keta...
Multi-modality cancer treatments that include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted agents are highly effective therapies. Their use, especially in combination, is limited by the risk of signi...
A sensitive electrochemical immunosensor was developed for detection of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) based on a three-dimensional nanostructure gold electrode using a facile, rapid, "green" square-wave oxi...
A novel ultrasensitive immunoassay method was developed by combination of the enzymatically catalytic gold deposition with the prepared gold nanoprobe and the gold stripping analysis at an electrochem...
A sandwich-type electrochemical immunosensor based on redox probe tags identification technology for ultrasensitive simultaneous detection of four antigens was proposed. In this project, well-distribu...
The purpose of this study is to assess the extent to which combining exercise and stress management training (SMT) is more effective at improving biomarkers in vulnerable cardiac patients ...
Calcified aortic valve stenosis (CAVS) is a progressive disease and nowadays, the cornerstone in diagnostics and follow-up is echocardiography. Cardiac biomarkers (such as cardiac troponin...
NovellusDx is developing a diagnostic platform for the early detection of cancer and a platform for personalized cancer therapy based on patient derived tumor tissue. The assay is able to ...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether a DNA chip, designed by Medical Prognosis Institute (MPI), can provide an accurate prognosis for survival of NSCLC (adeno-, squamous and la...
Pneumonia is a common cause of morbidity and mortality. The diagnosis of pneumonia from the microbiology perspective has been challenging. Recent reports suggest the utility of nuclear aci...
Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
Therapeutic cult concerned with intangible energies surrounding the living body and based on the detection of these intrinsic radiations by dowsing, or divining, or the use of more elaborate instruments (radionics).
Ascertaining of deception through detection of emotional disturbance as manifested by changes in physiologic processes usually using a polygraph.
A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES based on the detection through serological testing of characteristic change in the serum level of specific ANTIBODIES. Latent subclinical infections and carrier states can thus be detected in addition to clinically overt cases.
