Abstract

A handheld lab-on-a-chip immunosensor was developed for rapid detection of H1N1/2009 virus inside a 1:10 scale mock classroom. The device detected Mie light scattering from immunoagglutination of antibody-conjugated submicron latex beads with H1N1/2009 target in a handheld optofluidic device. The lowest detectable amount was 55 pg of H1N1/2009 viruses in 0.1 m3 of a room with 2 min sampling time. A 3-D computational fluid dynamics simulation was utilized to track the transport and distribution of H1N1/09 within a mock classroom, and corresponded very well with immunosensor readings. The device and 3-D CFD model could serve as a good model for monitoring the viral pathogen within a human environment.
