A self-contained fiber optic immunosensor was developed to measure continuously theophylline concentrations. The analytical signal was derived from the non-radiative energy transfer quench of fluorescence following binding of a fluorescence donor, B-phycoerythrin labeled theophylline, to an energy acceptor, Texas Red labeled antibody. Increases in free(More)
A self-contained fiber-optic immunosensor was developed to measure the 16,500-Da protein myoglobin. The sensing element was constructed by entrapment of Cascade Blue-labeled antibody within polyacrylamide gel at the distal face of an optical fiber 300 microns in core diameter. The polyacrylamide gel composition was optimized to allow diffusion of myoglobin(More)

A nonradioisotopic method for measuring red cell volume that involves the use of 52Cr-sodium chromate as the red cell label and of graphite furnace atomic absorption analysis of chromium is described. The technique allows the labelling of 20 mL of packed red cells with 40 to 50 micrograms of sodium chromate (Na2CrO4) in 30 minutes at 22 degrees C with 94(More)
Early identification of patients presenting with myocardial infarction (MI) is necessary for rapid initiation of treatment. Currently, MI has been diagnosed using the combination of the history, electrocardiogram (ECG), and biochemical markers of myocardial necrosis. Unfortunately, all lack sufficient sensitivity and specificity to confidently identify most(More)
A recently developed nonradioisotopic 52Cr technique was used to measure either red cell volume or posttransfusion recovery of stored red cells. The experimental method uses Zeeman electrothermal atomic absorption spectrophotometry to measure red cell chromium. Results from the 52Cr method were compared with those from 51Cr single-label and(More)
