Description

Microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (uPADs) are diagnostic devices that are inexpensive, bio-friendly, and small in scale. This device requires little training in analyzing the result which shows through simple change in colors. Here we used chromatography paper and nitrocellulose paper as the base of this device and used the wax-printing method to pattern the area of detection. The study demonstrates potential fluid channel designs and simulation results of an oPAD, origami paper analytical device, for simultaneous detection of multiple viral antigens. For the proof of concept, we used prostate specific antigen(PSA) as a model molecule to test for oPAD capability in showing results.
