The serologic detection of anti-Toxoplasma gondii immunoglobulins plays a key role in the clinical diagnosis of Toxoplasmosis. In this paper, a simple, rapid and highly sensitive agglutination-based piezoelectric immunoassay has been firstly developed for directly detecting anti-T. gondii immunoglobulins in infected rabbit serum (IRS) and infected rabbit blood (IRB). The proposed technique is based on that the specific agglutination of antigen-coated gold nanoparticles, averaging 10nm in… CONTINUE READING
