Problem

The detection of specific antibodies plays a crucial role in the diagnosis of infectious diseases and autoimmune diseases. While for antibody detection assays that monitor prior infectious diseases in many cases a qualitative yes/no answer is sufficient, there often is also a clinical need in more quantitative antibody detection assays. As an increasing number of antibody-based drugs are being introduced for medical treatment, the monitoring of therapeutic antibody levels in blood is becoming increasingly important for patient-specific dosage optimization, eg. in managing inflammatory diseases. Currently used clinical standard methods for antibody quantification including ELISA assays, (electro)- chemiluminescence-based immunoassays, SPR, or RIA assays require sophisticated highcost analytical instruments, as well as time-consuming and laboratory-bound processes (reagent handling and sample pretreatment).

Solution

RAPPID has been developed to replace existing, slow ELISA methods with a simple mix and measure method to rapidly and accurately quantify the amount of the antibody/antigen of interest (e.g. drug) in a biological sample, such as blood.
