Abstract

We explore a novel microfluidic approach for assays without sample preparation which can revolutionize point-of-care diagnostics industry due to its simplicity and affordability. This studies aims at understanding the role of surface coverage and diffusion distance in antibody-antigen equilibrium in Teflon-FEP microcapillaries. IL-1β human cytokine sandwich assay showed higher surface coverages in ∼200 μm diameter microcapillaries eliminating biological matrix effect interference, being highly desirable for rapid point-of-care (POC) tests.
