Paper Abstract

There is a clear need for a portable analytical system with high sample throughput, which yields rapid and clear results at a field level for color-based assays. ELISA is a widely used technique for environmental and clinical analysis. However it is time consuming, non-portable, requires expensive plate reading equipment and skilled analysts. An alternative system has been developed in our laboratories using a digital camcorder as a detection method. Preliminary results generated in our laboratories using this approach to screen antibody-antigen reactions have been very promising.
