LDL Cholesterol Testing Device using Serial Reflected Face-to-Face Mirror System

Open Access Open Access


A low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol testing device, structured with serial reflected face-to-face mirror (SRM) allowing spectrophotometry measurements, is presented. The spectrophotometry has been employed to measure the amount of light that a sample absorbs, but it generally should have had path length longer than 10 mm to secure enough sensitivity. Such requirement of path length has often been problematic in implementing a thin type of lab on a disc (LOD). We developed the SRM system which was implemented in a detection chamber with 1.4mm thickness, providing path length longer than 10mm, and thus straightforwardly being applicable to LOD as thin as a compact disc. The experimental results show that the SRM system gives not only a much thinner design compared to the conventional spectrophotometry-based LOD but also a comparable performance to already commercialized spectrometers.
