Scholarcy highlights

  • This paper reports, for the first time, details of a novel type of optical biosensor for immunoassays, the fluorescence capillarv-fill device
  • This is based on a straightforward adaptation of the technology used to mass manufacture liquid-crystal display cells to give cheap disposable immunosensors. These merely require contact by the sample to give a result in about a minute, and use certain principles of optical fibres and waveguides to avoid the need for operator attention, for physical separation methods or for washing steps
  • The optical characteristics of the FCFD are described, followed by accounts of the immunoassay method, the measurement system used in the experiments, the fabrication of fcfd sensors and a detailed description of the design of a competitive immunoassay for human immunoglobulin G
