Paper Abstract

The BioHawk is a highly automated aerosol collector and 8-channel wet assay bio-identifier integrated into a single man-portable case. Samples may be transferred automatically from the aerosol collector to the bio-identifier portion under software recipe control, or from a sample port provided for grab sample boluses. Eight parallel wet assays are performed within a disposable plastic coupon, and each coupon may be reused 10 or more times. All reagents and fluids needed for the baseline sandwich immunoassay protocols are contained within the coupon in lyophilized form: On first use, reagents are automatically hydrated. The system is designed for long-term unattended operation and user intervention requirements are minimal to none.
