Abstract
The severity and cost of wound infections strongly demands for simple and fast methods for wound infection determination. Point-of-care testing devices play a crucial role in order to achieve a fast diagnosis and early treatment. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) enzyme, detected in fluids of infected wounds has been postulated as a suitable biomarker for wound diagnostics. Here we present a new system for MPO detection, based on enzyme-catalysed oxidative synthesis of a dye that can be incorporated into pa...
