Saliva-based diagnostic system (Noninvasive diagnostics)
Saliva has great potential as a diagnostic fluid. It offers a great advantage in its noninvasive features (no need for needles in blood collection) and an easy sample collection (spitting the saliva to the collection bottle or collecting using a mouth swab). In addition, saliva diagnostics provide a low risk of infection in sample collection.
To overcome the low concentration of the biomarker in saliva, we aim to develop preconcentration-enhanced saliva-based diagnostic tools.
· The increase in sensitivity of diluted salivary biomarkers via ICP technique
· Applicable for POCT system
· Applicable for chronic disease self-test and self-management
· Suitable for companion diagnostics
