    Quick Results Possible with Lab-on-a-Chip COVID-19 Antibody Test

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    COVID-19 antibody testing could be possible with a microfluidic device invented at the University of Michigan (U-M) and developed by U-M startup Optofluidic Bioassay. The new system is believed to be the first microfluidic approach to a gold-standard testing protocol known as “enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay,” or ELISA.

    A microfluidic device, or lab-on-a-chip, shrinks multiple lab functions onto a single chip millimeters to centimeters in size. The U-M researchers have previously published results showing that their device can work as well as the standard ELISA setup. They are currently validating it for use on COVID-19 antibodies.

    The researchers’ demonstrations have shown that they can detect synthetic COVID-19…
