Abstract

Due to the inherent characteristics including confinement of molecular diffusion and high surface-to-volume ratio, microfluidic device-based immunoassay has great advantages in cost, speed, sensitivity, and so on, compared with conventional techniques such as microtiter plate-based ELISA, latex agglutination method, and lateral flow immunochromatography. In this paper, we explain the detection of C-reactive protein as a model antigen by using our microfluidic immunoassay device, so-called immuno-pillar device. We describe in detail how we fabricated and used the immuno-pillar devices.
