Development of a Luminex based competitive immunoassay for 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT).


Previously, a displacement immunoassay for 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) was demonstrated using the Luminex 100. The work presented utilized this same specialized flow cytometer to demonstrate a highly sensitive and rapid competitive immunoassay for TNT. This required a TNT analog to be attached to the microsphere surface. Various linkers were evaluated… (More)
