Abstract

Infections of high-risk strains of human papilloma virus (HPV16-E7) have been directly linked with cervical carcinogenesis [1]. Despite pervasive HPV testing and vaccinations, resource-poor regions continue to be affected. We present here a fully automated, bead-based Rapid Antigenic Protein In-situ Display (RAPID) Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) for the detection of the onco-proteins of HPV16 E7 [1]. Advanced centrifugal flow control is implemented by a novel router based on lipophilic membranes in an event-trigger valving architecture [2]. By simply replacing the charge of RAPID-functionalized beads in the incubation chamber, the system may be customized for the detection of other biomarkers.
