Abstract

Creative and novel microimmunoassay approaches continue to proliferate across many platforms originating from several fields of study. These efforts are aimed at improving one or more metrics for clinical tests, including improved sensitivity, increased speed, reduced cost, smaller sample size, the ability to analyze multiple antigens in parallel and ease of use. Many approaches focus on the production of microarrays that accomplish standard assays in parallel, or mobile solid-support formats to overcome issues of high background noise and long incubation times. In this article, innovative developments beyond existing commercial tests in the microimmunoassay arena are reviewed, covering January 2008 to April 2012. These developing experimental platforms are discussed in terms of their ability to augment or replace current commercial approaches.
