Risa Kohiyama has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10900970
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to improve visibility by reducing background noise in order to accurately detect the signal from a target substance in an immunochromatographic device. The immunochromatographic device comprises a membrane having a detection region, to which an antibody or antigen serving as a capturing substance capable of capturing a target substance is immobilized, for detecting the target substance by using an antigen or antibody labeled with a labeling carrier that is a colored particle to form a complex of the capturing substance-target substance-labeled antigen or antibody in the capturing substance-immobilized detection region on the device, based on color of the labeling carrier, wherein a colorant having a color complementary to the color of the labeling carrier is allowed to be contained in a dry state in a constituent member of the device such that the colorant is developed together with a specimen when the specimen is developed on the device.

  • Patent number: 10883985
    Abstract: Disclosed is an immunochromatographic test strip by which the influences by the interfering substances in the immunochromatography method, contained in test samples, are reduced, so that it enables to accurately and specifically measure a test substance in a test sample irrespective of the amount of the test sample supplied to the assay, and to provide an immunochromatography method using the immunochromatographic test strip. The immunochromatographic test strip includes, in the order from upstream, a sample pad, a labeled substance region, a detection region and an absorption band, wherein a polymer(s) in which hydrophobic cyclic monomer(s) having an ionic functional group(s) is/are polymerized is impregnated at a region(s) upstream of the labeled substance region.

  • Publication number: 20190277838
    Abstract: The present invention intends to provide an immunochromatographic test piece that makes it possible to achieve both highly sensitive detection of a substance to be detected and a simple test piece structure, which are usually difficult to be made compatible with each other.

  • Publication number: 20180164316
    Abstract: Disclosed is a novel method of detecting a test subject by an immunoassay, in which low sensitivity due to using a monoclonal antibody is improved in spite of using a monoclonal antibody in the immunoassay. The method of detecting a test subject is a method of detecting a test subject having two or more kinds of antigens which enable detection of said test subject, which method is performed by an immunoassay such as a sandwich method, using a monoclonal antibody or an antigen-binding fragment thereof which recognizes the two or more kinds of antigens.
