PhD Thesis “Electrochemical detection of biomolecules in lateral flow devices”
Driven by the decentralization of health care systems and the increasing health awareness among the general population, there is a growing demand for low-cost, non-invasive and easy-to-use healthcare devices suitable for determining the health status at the point-of-care. In this context, the development of point-of-care compatible biosensor platforms for the detection of specific biomarker molecules in body liquids plays a pivotal role. Specifically, electrochemical detection of target molecules in easy-to-use lateral flow devices represents a highly promising approach and is the topic of this PhD thesis. The goal is the detection and quantification of the concentration levels of a defined set of biomarker molecules in human salvia.
