Low cost Microchip for Point of Care high Sensitive Assays

We have developed microfluidic polymer chips, and their associated reader for rapid differential diagnosis of disease states2. Each polymer chip is 2×2 cm2, and needs only 10 μl of whole blood sample of the patient for diagnoses. The turnaround time from introducing the blood sample to get the results is 15-30 min. The chip contains all the reagents, and thus it is disposable and can be used in doctors' office/emergency rooms of the hospitals without any need for central laboratory equipment. The device is also fairly sensitive and we wish to extend the limit of detection for measuring disease biomarkers in blood down to femtogram/ml.
