A protein chip diagnostic kit was developed for the diagnosis of hepatitis C virus (HCV) based on the protein chip technique and the immuno-concentration method. This kit was designed for low-density protein chips and also for the availability of multiple sample screening. Applicability of the chip was evaluated using 96 blood specimens and the results were compared to results of an anti-HCV enzyme immunoassay (EIA) test. With further development, the technology associated with the development of this chip could be applied to the simultaneous detection of multiple protein-protein, protein-ligand interactions.
