Lab on a Chip Journal Publishes SUNY Poly Collaborative COVID-19 Focused Research
Lab on a Chip
The publication, Lab on a Chip, published, "Disposable photonics for cost-effective clinical bioassays: application to COVID-19 antibody testing," by researchers at SUNY Poly, including Dr. Nate Cady, Empire Innovation Professor of Nanobioscience, Dr. Natalya Tokranova, Instructor, and Graduate Student Minhaz Abedin (see photo), with researchers from the University of Rochester.
Together, they "present a new 'disposable photonics' sensor platform in which rice-sized (1 x 4 mm) silicon nitride ring resonator sensor chips are paired with plastic micropillar fluidic cards for sample handling and optical detection. We demonstrate the utility of the platform in the context of detecting human antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, both in convalescent COVID-19 patients and for subjects undergoing vaccination.'
