Aptamers (often referred to as “synthetic” antibodies) are RNA or DNA oligonucleotides (or peptides) that, through their 3-dimensional structures, bind to specific targets (small molecules, large biomolecules, and even cells) with high affinity and specificity.
Aptamers for D-Dimer
This Aptamer is able to quantify the protein in blood samples. It is shown to be useful in homogeneous assays such as turbidimetry (comparable to clinically approved laboratory turbidimetric immunoassay) and in manual point-of-care agglutination tests.
Aptamers can penetrate faster and more efficiently due to their small size. Aptamers are non-immunogenic in vivo and are thermally stable at ambient temperature. Aptamers are rapidly synthesized in large quantities at a low production cost.
