Method for detection of nucleic acid using total internal reflectance
Patent 5585242 Issued on December 17, 1996. Estimated Expiration Date: August 31, 2015. Estimated Expiration Date is calculated based on simple USPTO term provisions. It does not account for terminal disclaimers, term adjustments, failure to pay maintenance fees, or other factors which might affect the term of a patent.
An apparatus and method for detecting amplified target nucleic acid is provided wherein the presence and concentration of amplified target is determined by total internal reflection over the course of the amplification reaction. A method and apparatus for detecting target nucleic acid is also provided wherein the presence and concentration of target is determined by total internal reflection and coupling of the target to the TIR element by scissile linkage. An improved immunoassay using total internal reflection and differential temperature cycling is further provided.
