Title: A PREFABRICATED MICROPARTICLE FOR PERFORMING A DETECTION OF AN ANALYTE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a prefabricated microparticle for performing detection, preferably a digital detection and/or quantitation of an analyte. Furthermore, it also relates to a detection and/or quantitation of multiple analytes by prefabricated microparticles. It also relates to a collection of such prefabricated microparticles and to the use of such microparticle(s) and/or of such collection. Furthermore, the present invention also relates to a method of performing a detection and/or quantitation of an analyte in a sample wherein a microparticle or collection of microparticles are used. In one embodiment, in the collection of microparticles, individual microparticles are tailored for the detection of specific analytes and can be distinguished from each other by a specific label indicating the respective analyte for which the individual microparticle is specific.
