    ABSTRACT: A sensitive and rapid homogeneous immunoassay method based on microchip electrophoresis-chemiluminescence detection (MCE-CL) using luminol-hydrogen peroxide as chemiluminescence system catalyzed by horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was developed for the determination of progesterone (P). The assay was based on the competitive immunoreactions between HRP-labeled P antigen (HRP-P) and P with a limited amount of anti-P mouse monoclonal antibody (Ab), and MCE separation of free HRP-P and HRP-P-Ab immunocomplex followed by CL detection. The effect of various factors such as conditions for the CL reaction, MCE and incubation time for the immunoreactions were examined and optimized. Under optimal assay conditions, the MCE separation was accomplished within 80s. The linear range of detection for P was 8-800nM with a detection limit of 3.8nM (signal/noise ratio=3). This present method has been applied to determine P in human serum samples from normal and pregnant women. The result indicates that the proposed MCE-CL based homogeneous immunoassay method can serve as an alternative tool for clinical assay of P.

    ABSTRACT: An amplified graphene oxide (GO) based fluorescence aptasensor based on target-triggered aptamer hairpin switch and strand-displacement polymerization recycling is developed for bioassays. The dye-labeled single-strand DNA (aptamer hairpin) was adsorbed on the surface of GO, which result in the fluorescence quenching of dye, and exhibiting minimal background fluorescence. Upon the target, primer and polymerase, the stem of the aptamer hairpin was opened, and binds with the primer to triggers the circular target strand-displacement polymerization reaction, which produces huge amounts of duplex helixes DNA and lead to strong fluorescence emission due to shielding of nucelobases within its double-helix structure. During the polymerization reaction, the primer was extended, and target was displaced. And the displaced target recognizes and hybridizes with another hairpin probe, triggering the next round of polymerization reaction, and the circle process induces fluorescence signal amplification for the detection of analyte. To test the feasibility of the aptasensor systems, interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) was employed as a model analyte. A detection limit as low as 1.5fM is obtained based on the GO aptasensor with a linear range of three orders of magnitude. The present method was successfully applied for the detection of IFN-γ in human plasma.

    ABSTRACT: A facile and universal strategy for multiplexed immunoassay is proposed. The strategy is based on microchip electrophoresis (MCE) coupled with on-line magnetic separation and chemiluminescence (CL) detection. The system consisted of a microchip, an electromagnet, and a photomultiplier. The realization of multiplexed immunoassay protocol involves sampling magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) labeled antibodies, N-(4-aminobutyl)-N-ethyl-isoluminol (ABEI) labeled antigens and free antigens in the precolumn reactor, on-line immunoreaction, capturing the MNPs-immunocomplexes, and the separation of unconjugated ABEI-labeled antigens. After on-line magnetic separation, the free ABEI-labeled antigens were transported into the separation channel, and mixed with hydrogen peroxide (H(2) O(2) ) in the presence of horseradish peroxidase in the postcolumn reactor, and producing CL emission. Using this arrangement, multiple analytes could be measured simultaneously by performing the technical operations for a single assay. As a proof-of-concept, the multiplexed immunoassay was evaluated for the simultaneous determination of five model analytes (i.e. hydrocortisone, corticosterone, digoxin, testosterone, and estriol). The results exhibited excellent precision and sensitivity, the relative standard deviations for nine times detection were lower than 4.7% for all the five components, and the detection limits of five analytes were in the range of 3.6-4.9 nM. The MCE system was validated using two human serum-based control samples containing five analytes.

    ABSTRACT: We report on a novel strategy to improve microfluidic immunoassay sensitivity by introducing chemiluminescence resonance energy transfer (CRET) into the immunoreactions. The proposed CRET-based immunoassay for estradiol (E2, as a model analyte) is one of the most sensitive immunoassay with a limit of detection at 3.6 × 10(-11) M E2 in a microfluidic format.

    ABSTRACT: A microchip electrophoresis method with laser induced fluorescence detection was developed for the immunoassay of phenobarbital. The detection was based on the competitive immunoreaction between analyte phenobarbital and fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) labeled phenobarbital with a limited amount of antibody. The assay was developed by varying the borate concentration, buffer pH, separation voltage, and incubation time. A running buffer system containing 35 mM borate and 15 mM sodium dodecyl sulfate (pH 9.5), and 2800 V separation voltage provided analysis conditions for a high-resolution, sensitive, and repeatable assay of phenobarbital. Free FITC-labeled phenobarbital and immunocomplex were separated within 30s. The calibration curve for phenobarbital had a detection limit of 3.4 nM and a range of 8.6-860.0 nM. The assay could be used to determine the phenobarbital plasma concentration in clinical plasma sample.
