Detecting human serum albumin (HSA) in urine samples is a standard procedure for the diagnosis of kidney problems and the prognosis of patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKDs). In this study, we developed a HSA assay by incorporating a thin layer of liquid crystals (LCs) as a readout system such that the presence of HSA in urine samples can be detected as optical signals. In combination with dilution protocols, this assay can be used to estimate the concentration range of HSA simply by… Expand
Liquid crystal-based immunoassay for detecting human serum albumin
Human serum albumin (HSA) is the most abundant protein in human blood plasma. It is commonly used as a biomarker in urine samples to identify the chronic kidney disease caused by high blood pressureExpand
An NIR fluorescent probe of uric HSA for renal diseases warning
Abstract Diseases of the kidney, including acute kidney injury, nephritic syndromes, chronic kidney disease, and renal cysts, are accompanied by a series of characteristic clinical features. HumanExpand
A Portable Device for Rapid Detection of Human Serum Albumin using an immunoglobulin-coating-based Magnetoelastic Biosensor.
TLDR
This paper presents a wireless immunoglobulin-coated magnetoelastic (ME) biosensor for fast, cost-effective detections of human serum albumin (HSA) with small sample volumes at a microliter scale and shows high potential to be used in diagnosing abnormal HSA. Expand
A small, steady, rapid and selective TICT based fluorescent HSA sensor for pre-clinical diagnosis
Abstract Quantitative detection of HSA in biological fluids is essential for pre-clinical diagnosis. Herein a TICT based HSA sensor NJUP1 was introduced for detection in healthy and hypertensionExpand
Simultaneous Detection of Human Serum Albumin and Sulfur Dioxide in Living Cells Based on a Catalyzed Michael Addition Reaction.
TLDR
A novel single-site, double-sensing fluorescent probe 1 is reported, based on the finding that HSA can catalyze a Michael addition reaction between the probe and SO2, which induces a change in fluorescence, which may provide a significant boost in the study of the role of HSA in medicine and pharmacy.

Antibody-free detection of human chorionic gonadotropin by use of liquid crystals.
TLDR
An antibody-free and label-free mechanism for detecting hCG that uses a short oligopeptide as an hCG receptor to bind hCG and has the potential to become a portable diagnostic kit for hCG. Expand
A novel hydrazide Schiff base self-assembled nanoprobe for selective detection of human serum albumin and its applications in renal disease surveillance.
TLDR
A novel hydrazide Schiff base fluorescent probe N'-((7-(diethylamino)-2-oxo-2H-chromen-3-yl)methylene)pyrazine-2-carbohydrazide (NPC), which self-assembled into nanoparticles in aqueous solution, which exhibited superior selectivity and sensitivity toward HSA. Expand
Red-emitting benzo[e]indolium probes for HSA based on the TICT characteristics
Abstract Human serum albumin (HSA) is the most abundant protein in human blood plasma. It plays an important role in many physiological functions, and the increase or decrease of HSA can exhibit theExpand
A fluorescent sensor for discrimination of HSA from BSA through selectivity evolution.
TLDR
HSA destruction, site competition and molecular docking provided reliable evidence for the fact that RhHSA could be embedded into both ibuprofen and phenylbutazone sites of HSA, and supported the discrimination of H SA from BSA. Expand
A Near Infrared Fluorescent Probe for Sensitive Determination of Human Serum Albumin.
A fluorescent probe 1 has been successfully developed to determine human serum albumin (HSA). Probe 1 expresses a dramatic fluorescence enhancement to HSA without interference from other amino acids.Expand

TLDR
Four immunochemical methods for measuring urinary albumin at low concentrations were assessed for their assay characteristics and practicability and capital cost was highest with RIA and lowest with RID, which required most technical skill. Expand
