A research team led by Christopher Bowman of the University of Colorado has developed a novel microfluidic detection platform that utilizes polymerization-based amplification (PBA) as a means for simple detection in microfluidic systems. This capillary flow device allows for multiple modes of detection requiring little or no supplemental instrumentation (visual observation, pressure monitoring, or by redirection of fluid flow). The rapid, equipment- free nature of this approach is promising for potential deployment of point-of-care diagnostics in resource-limited settings.
