Abstract
We propose to develop a multiplexed immunoassay for the detection of 2 - 4 medically relevant biomarkers of traumatic brain injury for use by front-line medical personnel and their civilian equivalents. The assay will provide results in less than 30 minutes, and provide information as to the actual level (concentration) of the biomarkers in the patient. The sample size for operating the assay is approximately 100 uL. The assay will incorporate ANP Technologies' patented and proprietary technologies that utilize specially designed polymeric scaffolds to increase the assay sensitivity and virtually eliminate false positive results from non-specific binding events.
