Detection of human interleukin-8 (IL-8) using a combination tapered fiber-optic biosensor probe.
We are reporting detection of human interleukin-8 (IL-8) using combination tapered fiber-optic biosensor (CTFOB) dip-probe. With these probes we could successfully detect IL-8, up to a concentration of 500 pM. Sandwich immunoassay was used as the detection technique. The specificity of the sensor was established by using two types of negative control probes. It is demonstrated that the developed CTFOB dip-probe is a highly specific detector as the signal from the non specific protein was not more than the background signal.
