Chemiluminescence multichannel immunosensor for biodetection
An improved portable detector for biological compounds, the chemiluminescence multichannel immunosensor has been developed and characterised. The device is based on a capillary ELISA technique in combination with a miniaturised fluidics system and uses chemiluminescence as the detection principle. The fluidics system construction allows three chemiluminescence immunoassays to be performed simultaneously within three fused silica capillaries. The CL-MADAG was characterised in a series of experiments with staphylococcal enterotoxin B as a model toxin, the bacterial phage virus M13 as a virus simulant and a pathogenic strain of Escherichia coli as stimulant for bacteria.
