An integrated approach for detecting proteins that is low-cost, portable, battery-operated, and works under field conditions such as direct sunlight has been developed. The “POCKET immunoassay” uses commercially available components, and exhibits an analytical performance approaching that of established bench-top techniques. It may be appropriate for the diagnosis of infectious diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, in developing countries (see picture).
