In this paper we report on the development of a diagnostic test for the detection of illegal drugs in saliva using a disposable micro-fluidic sample preparation cartridge which was fabricated using CO2 and excimer laser ablation of a PMMA substrate assembly. The detection method is by immunoassay sensing on a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) platform. Experimental results shows that the immunoassay detection of the two illegal drugs tested are very sensitive and have a linear range for cocaine and MDMA of 0,01 pg/ml – 1 ng/ml and 0,1 pg/ml – 100 ng/ml respectively.
