A New Era In Cardiac Health diagnostics With Silicon-based Integrated System

Researchers at A*STAR’s Institute of Microelectronics (or IME) have developed a rapid and sensitive integrated system to test for specific cardiac biomarkers in blood. Compared to the conventional testing platform known as ELISA (Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay), the new integrated system significantly cuts sample preparation and analysis time which typically requires 6 hours to just 45 minutes.
