We modified the structural properties of paper and applied inkjet printing to biofunctionalize paper in order to fabricate inexpensive, sustainable and disposable bioassays. We demonstrated a paper-based immunoassay in which transport of fluids and particles, amount of capturing antibodies, as well as the strength of paper in aqueous conditions were controlled. This research is conducted towards the development and design of paper-based diagnostics in the fields of health, well-being, and environmental POC diagnostics, where the main focus is versatility, novel test formats with new design opportunities and low-cost mass production.
