We report a low cost device for performing chemiluminescent (CL) assays in a miniaturised format. The device comprises a poly(dimethylesiloxane) microfluidic chip for performing the CL assay coupled to a polymer photodiode based on a 1:1 blend by weight of poly(3-hexylthiophene) [P3HT] and 1-(3-methoxycarbonyl)-propyl-1-phenyl-(6,6)C61 [PCBM]. The integration of organic photodiodes with microfluidic chips offers a promising route to low cost fully integrated diagnostic devices for point-of-care applications.
