Shia WW, Bailey RC (2013) Single domain antibodies for the detection of ricin using silicon photonic microring resonator arrays. Anal Chem 85(2):805-810. doi: 10.1021/ac3030416
Summary: A major hurdle to clear in the fight against bioterrorism is the ability to identify various biowarfare agents. One of the more difficult substances to identify is ricin. This work describes the use of single domain antibodies to identify ricin in a microring resonator array assay. Saporin (Cat. #PR-01) along with affinity purified chicken anti-saporin (Cat. #AB-17AP) were used as controls when constructing the assay. The results demonstrate the feasibility of using microring resonator arrays for the detection of biowarfare agents.
