Paper Abstract

The synthesis of analytical instrumentation and analytical biochemistry technologies in modern in vitro diagnostic instrumentation continues to generate new systems with improved performance and expanded capability. Detection modalities have expanded to include multichip modes of fluorescence, scattering, luminescence and reflectance so as to accommodate increasingly sophisticated immunochemical and nucleic acid based reagent systems. The time line graph of system development now extends from the earliest automated clinical spectrophotometers through molecule recognition assays and biosensors to the new breakthroughs of biochip and DNA diagnostics. This brief review traces some of the major innovations in the evolution of system technologies and previews the conference program.
