Saliva-based diagnostic system (Noninvasive diagnostics)

Saliva has great potential as a diagnostic fluid. It offers a great advantage in its noninvasive features (no need for needles in blood collection) and an easy sample collection (spitting the saliva to the collection bottle or collecting using a mouth swab). In addition, saliva diagnostics provide a low risk of infection in sample collection.

To overcome the low concentration of the biomarker in saliva, we aim to develop preconcentration-enhanced saliva-based diagnostic tools.

  • · The increase in sensitivity of diluted salivary biomarkers via ICP technique

  • · Applicable for POCT system

  • · Applicable for chronic disease self-test and self-management

  • · Suitable for companion diagnostics
