Ultrasonic enrichment of microspheres for ultrasensitive biomedical analysis in confocal laser-scanning fluorescence detection
2004 (English)In: Journal of Applied Physics, ISSN 0021-8979, E-ISSN 1089-7550, Vol. 96, no 2, 1242-1248 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
An ultrasonic particle concentrator based on a standing-wave hemispherical resonator is combined with confocal laser-scanning fluorescence detection. The goal is to perform ultrasensitive biomedical analysis by concentration of biologically active microspheres. The standing-wave resonator consists of a 4 MHz focusing ultrasonic transducer combined with the optically transparent plastic bottom of a disposable 96-well microplate platform. The ultrasonic particle concentrator collects suspended microspheres into dense, single-layer aggregates at well-defined positions in the sample vessel of the microplate, and the fluorescence from the aggregates is detected by the confocal laser-scanning system. The biochemical properties of the system are investigated using a microsphere-based human thyroid stimulating hormone assay.
