  4. 4. Novel planar and particle-based microarrays for point-of-care diagnostics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Gustav Svedberg; Helene Svahn Andersson; Jesper Gantelius; Fridtjof Lund-Johansen; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Planar microarrays; Particle-based microarrays; Point-of-care diagnostics; Colorimetric detection; Signal enhancement; Isothermal DNA amplification; Solid-phase DNA amplification; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Point-of-care assays are easy-to-use, portable and inexpensive tests that canbe used to aid diagnostics by measuring levels of disease-specific moleculesin settings where access to advanced laboratory equipment and trainedpersonnel are limited, such as at the patient's bedside or in low resourceparts of developing countries. In order to achieve high multiplexingcapacities, such assays can be based on planar microarrays consisting ofspots immobilized on a flat surface or on particle-based microarrays basedon populations of encoded particles.

  5. 5. An electrostatic sampling device for point-of-care detection of bioaerosols

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Laila Ladhani; Wouter van der Wijngaart; Jorma Keskinen; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electrostatic sampling; bioaerosols; point-of-care; breath sampling; electrostatic precipitation; microfluidic collection; corona discharge; air sampling; non-invasive diagnostics; exhaled breath analysis; on-site detection; aerosol sampling; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Bioaerosols are not only a significant factor of air quality but contribute greatly to the spread of infectious diseases, specifically through expired pathogen-laden aerosols. Clear examples of airborne transmission include: the recent influenza pandemic of 2009, the ongoing tuberculosis epidemic, and yearly norovirus out- breaks, which affect millions of people worldwide and pose serious threats to public healthcare systems.
