Highly Modular Bioluminescent Sensors for Small Molecules and Proteins

Obtaining patient-specific information through the quantification of small molecules and proteins in bodily fluids is essential for personalized therapies. Point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices hold the promise of delivering such benefit to a wide range of patients. However, there is a lack of enabling technology, as the majority of newly developed POC devices focus on the same underlying core technologies. Here we provide an overview of a new technology based on highly modular bioluminescent sensors that enables the quantification of small molecules and proteins at the POC with low-cost devices.
