Silicon thin film photodetectors for multi-channel fluorescence detection in a microfluidic point-of-care testing device. Fluorescence spectroscopy is a powerful detection method in analytical chemistry, bio analytics,
and medicine. The challenge of point-of-care testing (POCT) is to monitor patients in e.g., a hospital within minutes and next to the patient’s bed, in contrast to external clinical in vitro testing with latency periods in the range of hours. By monitoring fluorescence in a direct test format with no need for time-consuming replication methods, like the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), the European NANODEM consortium
[1] pursues to demonstrate a miniaturized POCT device for quasi-continuous post-surgical control of critical immunosuppressant concentrations.
