Reveal unique insights into the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 not possible using standard antibody tests

|BBC showcases Fluidic Analytics’ clinical collaboration with Prof Aguzzi – A game-changer in the fight against COVID-19. |
This report takes you to the frontline in the battle against COVID-19 to see how the researchers at Fluidic Analytics (pioneers of the Fluidity One-W) and University Hospital Zurich are investigating Microfluidic Diffusional Sizing (MDS), a new way to study protein-protein interactions.
The collaboration involved a 40-patient study to reveal unique insights into the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 that could not be revealed by standard antibody tests. These insights included identifying the presence or absence of neutralising antibodies in a rapid two-hour assay and quantifying the affinity of patient antibodies to key epitopes of the virus directly in minimally diluted serum on the Fluidity One-W Serum.

Microfluidic Diffusional Sizing (MDS) – How it works
Microfluidic Diffusional Sizing (MDS)
Offers a new way to study protein interactions in crude biological backgrounds (e.g. cell lysates or blood plasma) and interactions of proteins with other secondary binding partners, like lipids and DNA.
