Development of a POC test system for the Quantification of amino acids in medical conditions

The project aim is to develop a POC test system that can rapidly quantify the amino acid concentration in medical conditions in need for urgent attention.  Aside from early diagnosis, the system could be used for routine monitoring of diagnostic amino acids at a POC or home environment.  Early diagnosis and monitoring could enable early treatment, or preparations for treatment prior to receipt of results from the central laboratory. Such preparations could include scheduling dietary products and supplements and ensuring the patient remains within or close to the POC until further results are available.
