  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to develop a real-time diagnostic technique with e- Ab sensor for specific EGFR mutation detection in clinical specimens of NSCLC patients, the investigators conduct a prospective clinical study. In comparison with results from direct sequencing of EGFR, the investigators evaluate the performance of e- Ab sensor, including reproducibility, sensitivity, specificity, and cross-reaction (such as detection of EGFR mutations other than L858R and DelL746-A750). The potential factors which may interfere with the results would be investigated. With such technique, the investigators can obtain EGFR mutation information of NSCLC patients in cost-saving and time-saving way and can offer more individualized treatment for the investigators patients.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Electrosensing antibody probing system (e- Ab sensing) Device: Electrosensing antibody probing system (e- Ab sensing)
Electrosensing antibody probing system (e- Ab sensing), which was developed for the rapid and sensitive detection of hapten, proteins or viral antigen in medical samples, will be used for analyzing the interaction kinetics between mutation-specific anti-EGFR and its antigen mutant EGFR present in NSCLC. The system incorporates the use of engineered semiconductive antibodies or virus in vertical and lateral chip (eAbchip) or lateral flow through (eAbsignal) formats. In electrosensing antibody probing, semiconductive antibodies are bound as a suitable electrosensing probe which specifically and selectively binds mutant EGFR polypeptide target molecules in the test specimen.
