This study reports a new immunomagnetic bead-based microfluidic system for the rapid detection of influenza A virus infection by performing a simple two-step diagnostic process that includes a magnetic bead-based fluorescent immunoassay (FIA) and an end-point optical analysis. With the incorporation of monoclonal antibody (mAb)-conjugated immunomagnetic(More)
UNLABELLED Magnetic manganese ferrite (MnFe2O4) nanoparticles with approximately 100nm in diameter were used to improve the performance of an immunoassay for detecting influenza infections. The synthesized nanoparticles were tested for long-term storage to confirm the stability of their thermal decomposition process. Then, an integrated microfluidic system(More)
Seasonal and novel influenza infections have the potential to cause worldwide pandemics. In order to properly treat infected patients and to limit its spread, a rapid, accurate and automatic influenza diagnostic tool needs to be developed. This study therefore presents a new integrated microfluidic system for the rapid detection of influenza infections. It(More)
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection causes a myriad of diseases from mild hand-foot-and-mouth disease or herpangina to fatal brain stem encephalitis complicated with pulmonary edema. Several severe EV71 endemics have occurred in Asia-Pacific region, including Taiwan, and have become a serious threat to children's health. EV71 infection is initiated by the(More)
In this paper, a reference-less all-digital wideband signaling (WBS) transceiver for body chancel communication (BCC) is presented. In the transmitter part, data are encoded in NRZI format, and the bit stuffer is used to increase the data transitions. In the receiver part, the received signals are amplified and restored to digital waveforms with analog(More)
Seasonal and novel influenza infections have caused worldwide pandemic. In order to properly treat the infected patients, a rapid and accurate influenza diagnostic tool should be developed. This study therefore presented a new integrated microfluidic system for detection of influenza infection. It integrated a suction-type, pneumatic-driven microfluidic(More)
In this paper, a novel beam-forming system consisting of 16 subarray antennas, each containing four aperture-coupled patch antennas, is presented in smart wireless communication systems. Each of the subarray antennas was able to switch its beam patterns toward one of nine zones over a half space by adjusting the specific phase delay angles among the four(More)
