The combination of electrospun nanofibrous membranes and microfluidic channels dramatically improves the sensitivities of HIV immunoassays in microfluidic channels. Simplicity and effectiveness of the new system can potentially pave the way for inexpensive, portable and highly sensitive diagnostic devices.
