Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2332529A] The analyte is separated from a sample by a selective selection means 3 which is defined as including an immunological species (e.g. an antibody) which is capable of taking part in an immunological specific binding reaction with an analyte species selectively to separate the analyte species from the sample, and/or includes an imprinted material (such as a molecularly imprinted material) of a type which is capable of undergoing selective interaction with the analyte species selectively to separate the analyte species from the sample. The separated species is detected by "chemical sensor means" 5 which is defined as a suitable transducer associated with a material capable of interacting with an analyte species, or an infrared detector. One or more species may be separated by the selective selection means and the sensor may detect one or a plurality of species. Examples of suitable separating means and chemical detectors are given.
