Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

SERRS has been used for the first time for the measurement of C-reactive protein (CRP) in an immunoassay. CRP, a biological marker for the diagnosis of infection and inflammation, is quantified in an ELISA using conventional reagents, but the usual colorimetric detection step is replaced by SERRS detection, offering improved sensitivity and potential for multiplexing analysis.
