  • Publication number: 20070090927
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention include a wireless sensor, such as an RFID tag, that includes a substrate, an antenna disposed on the substrate, and an environmentally sensitive sensor material disposed over at least a portion of said substrate. Other embodiments an RFID tag and at least one antibody coupled to the RFID tag. The RFID tag includes a substrate, circuitry disposed on the substrate, and an antenna coupled to the substrate. The at least one antibody is capable of affecting the signals emanating from the RFID tag. Further embodiments include a detection system that includes a reader. Yet other embodiments include a method for detecting specific analytes. The method includes providing an RFID tag which emanates a first signal having a first frequency, and enabling the REID tag to emanate a second signal having a second frequency upon attraction of a specific analyte to the RFID tag.

  • Publication number: 20070072309
    Abstract: Disclosed is an analytical composition comprising a carrier coupled to an analytical transducer nanoparticle and a selector. Disclosed also are methods to make the analytical compositions. The analytical compositions are useful in detection and/or quantification of analytes, such as chemical compounds, biological species, and the like. The selector renders the analytical composition specific to the analyte in question. The detection and/or quantification of the analytical compositions, thus the analytes, occur by virtue of the analytical transducer nanoparticle.

  • Publication number: 20070059203
    Abstract: A lateral flow device is disclosed. The lateral flow device includes a substrate having a flow path and a detection zone disposed along the flow path. The detection zone includes an immobilized target-binding moiety directed against a target of a Raman-active complex. Also disclosed is a method of conducting a lateral flow assay and detection system. The method includes i) defining a flow path having a detection zone; ii) flowing a sample down the flow path; and iii) immobilizing a Raman-active complex if present, at the detection zone. The sample includes a Raman-active complex or a Raman-active tag.
