• Magnetic
  • Magnetic immunoassay (MIA) is a novel type of diagnostic immunoassay using magnetic beads as labels in lieu of conventional enzymes (ELISA), radioisotopes (RIA) or fluorescent moieties (fluorescent immunoassays). (wikipedia.org)
  • Beyond this requirement, MIA that exploits the non-linear magnetic properties of magnetic labels can effectively use the intrinsic ability of a magnetic field to pass through plastic, water, nitrocellulose, and other materials, thus allowing for true volumetric measurements in various immunoassay formats. (wikipedia.org)
  • This technology,makes magnetic immunoassay possible in a variety of formats such as: conventional lateral flow test by replacing gold labels with magnetic labels, vertical flow tests allowing for the interrogation of rare analytes (such as bacteria) in large-volume samples microfluidic applications and biochip It was also described for in vivo applications and for multiparametric testing.

  • method
  • In San Francisco and across the San Francisco Bay at Alameda Naval Air Station, the U.S. EPA has also tested the immunoassay method for specific compounds in its Environmental Technology Verification program. (cpeo.org)
  • A method and apparatus for performing a chemiluminescent immunoassay featuring electrochemical techniques to generate an oxidant used to trigger the chemiluminescence of the labelled immunoreactant. (google.com)
  • Method: Microparticle Enzyme Immunoassay. (wikipedia.org)
  • apparatus
  • Apparatus for performing an immunoassay, comprises in combination a reaction tube closed at its bottom, and in the reaction tube a molded element having on its surface material having specific binding ability for a component in a liquid specimen to be assayed. (google.ca)
  • detect
  • Immunoassays are chemical tests used to detect or quantify a specific substance, the analyse, in a blood or body fluid sample, using an immunological reaction. (skf.com)
  • Industry
  • By 2012, the commercial immunoassay industry earned US$17,000,000,000 and was thought to have prospects of slow annual growth in the 2 to 3 percent range. (wikipedia.org)
  • tests
  • This type of immunoassay is now used in around 100 million clinical tests every year worldwide, enabling clinicians to measure a wide range of proteins, pathogens and other molecules in blood samples. (wikipedia.org)
  • sample
  • Surround optical-fiber immunoassay (SOFIA) is an ultrasensitive, in vitro diagnostic platform incorporating a surround optical-fiber assembly that captures fluorescence emissions from an entire sample. (wikipedia.org)
  • results
  • Immunoassay analyses reduce costs by providing real-time data, thus reducing the time spent waiting for analytical results and the amount of material that has to be excavated. (cpeo.org)
  • HAMA interference's can give false positive or negative immunoassay results. (wikipedia.org)
  • makes
  • In 1983, Professor Anthony Campbell at Cardiff University replaced radioactive iodine used in immunoassay with an acridinium ester that makes its own light: chemiluminescence. (wikipedia.org)
  • analysis
  • The Regional Water Quality Control Board (the agency in California that is authorized to enforce actions that affect surface and groundwater)) accepted the use of immunoassay analysis for the site closure of fuel-contaminated soil. (cpeo.org)
  • thus
  • A thin layer of constant thickness of a liquid specimen for immunoassay is thus receivable between the complementary surfaces. (google.ca)
  • various
  • Worldwide, IMMULITE systems have been chosen for various types of immunoassay testing due to their flexible platforms and breadth of menu. (bio-medicine.org)
  • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Nashville District used immunoassay kits at Campbell Army Air Field, located at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky, to determine the extent of PCB contamination at various sites around the facility. (cpeo.org)
