Clinical samples often contain a wealth of information in a very small sample volume. The analysis of these samples must be rapid and highly sensitive. Using traditional and micro-chip based immunoaffinity capillary electrophoresis (ICE), as well as multiplex assays from Quansys and MALDI-TOF spectroscopy, our unit has been able to rapidly analyze small sample volumes for numerous analytes with detection levels in the picogram range. These powerful techniques allow for faster analysis of critical samples and ultimately lend themselves to point-of-care therapy and real-time monitoring.
