Item Type:Article
Additional Information:This paper describes a rapid immunoassay system which provides a result in minutes; traditional immunoassays having assay times in excess of an hour. An invitation to give a plenary lecture at the prestigious Oak Ridge Conference organised by the American Association for Clinical Chemistry illustrates the work is internationally recognised. This work has instigated eight further collaborative projects with companies/bodies such as DSTL, Fort Halstead [Alistair Hutchinson], Birmingham University [Mark Colclough] and Gaiker TC, Bilboa [Javier Escobal]. The work is the basis of three international patents (two granted in a number of countries and one pending).
