This work exploits the high-affinity of recombinant antibodies and low background electrochemiluminescence (ECL) for cardiac-biomarker detection. The developed assay is capable of fg mL-1 detection limits as well as the detection of C-Reactive Protein (CRP) over a clinically relevant range. The assay demonstrated robust reproducibility, selectivity and stability while also highlighting a novel platform for detection of cardiac biomarkers at low concentrations.
