Sensitive elisa for disease diagnosis on surface modified poly(methyl methacrylate) (pmma) microfluidic microplates (Inactive)
Inventors: James Li, Sanjay Timilsina
Patent No. 11,014,088

Description:
This patent application embodies microfluidic microplate that detects acute infectious diseases through a rapid and sensitive test. This innovation is created with low cost materials and is an ideal device for remote and low-resource environment. Using an immunoassay to detect infectious diseases, this point-of-care device is comparable to the ELISA kits when looking at sensitivity and specificity. This detection device does not require any specialized equipment or a laboratory setting to perform immunological assay of a wide range of infectious diseases and cancer.

Abstract:
Certain embodiments are directed to an ultrasensitive poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) ELISA microfluidic microplate, where the protein is covalently bound to a poly-lysine modified or carboxylated PMMA surface.
