Lab-on-a-chip based immunosensor principles and technologies for the detection of cardiac biomarkers: a review.
Summary of "Lab-on-a-chip based immunosensor principles and technologies for the detection of cardiac biomarkers: a review."
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.

Substance Abuse Detection
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.
In this work, an on-chip optical immunosensor using an individually assembled carbon nanotube (CNT) coated with a photovoltaic polymer has been proposed, developed, characterized, and applied for the...
BACKGROUND: The emergence of microfluidic immunosensors has provided a promising tool for improving clinical diagnoses. We developed an electrochemical immunoassay for the simultaneous detection of ca...
In this work, a sensitive label-free impedimetric hCG-immunosensor was constructed by using a commercial screen-printing carbon ink electrode (namely disposable electrochemical printed chip) as the ba...
The present work is focused on the development, analytical characterization and evaluation of selective and sensitive SWNT-chemiresistor immunosensor for the label-free detection of salivary alpha-amy...
The concentration of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in blood is an important marker for heart muscle cell damage. A surface plasmon resonance (SPR)-based immunosensor was devised for the rapid and specific...
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...
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...
Primary Objective: -To determine if specific biomarkers (Troponin I and B-type natriuretic peptide [BNP]) detect cardiotoxicity earlier than standard clinical means in patients receiving...
The purpose of the study is to assess the efficacy and the safety of Chlorhexidine Gluconate chip (Periochip®) versus Placebo Chip in treatment of symptoms in patients with Peri-Implantit...
