Osteoarthritis (OA), the most common joint disease, is due to articular cartilage degradation, leading to joint destruction. The most common methods for diagnosing OA are done using radiographs and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method which are specific but require specialized laboratory facilities and highly trained personal. To avoid invasive methods for diagnosis, the current study describes a novel non-invasive detection method for osteoarthritis urine biomarkers. A highly selective and specific monoclonal antibodies, cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), were used to immobilize on a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensor. The developed QCM sensor for COMP detection showed good sensitivity, linearity, specificity and reliability.
