Microfluidic Immunoassay Market: Overview
- The immunoassay is one of the important analytical techniques based on molecular recognition between antibody and antigen that allows for detection of molecules with high specificity and sensitivity. Immunoassays are being widely used for the quantification of target molecules in many applications, such as proteomics, clinical diagnostics, pharmaceutical research, and basic biological investigations.
- In recent years, the use of microfluidic chips for immunoassays has been extensively explored. Combination of microfluidics and immunoassays provides a promising platform for various sensitive and automatic point-of-care (PoC) diagnostics.
- Microfluidic systems, also termed as lab-on-a-chip and the micro total analysis system, have shown promising results in immunosensor platforms. Microfluidic immunosensors provide significant advantages over conventional immunoassay methods, such as a high surface-to-volume ratio for efficient mass transport in immunoreactions, thus allowing for fast analysis; a miniaturized micro channel dimension to minimize the consumption of samples and reagents; and automated integration with other functions, such as pumps, valves, detectors, and mixers to attain a point-of-care (PoC) goal.
