Research undertaken by Dr. Leanne Harris and Professor Tony Killard on the development of a miniaturised microfluidic platform for Factor Xa (FXa) monitoring has been published as a cover article in the Analyst journal.

The manuscript, entitled 'A microfluidic anti-Factor Xa assay device for point of care monitoring of anticoagulation therapy' describes the development of a miniaturised, disposable microfluidic platform incorporating a fluorogenic anti-FXa assay. The ability of the prototype to effectively measure anticoagulant drugs in plasma, demonstrates its ability to be utilised in a point of care setting for monitoring antithrombotic therapy.
