INVENTORS: Dr. Salvador Eugenio C. Caoili, Dr. Cecile C. Dungog   DESCRIPTION The invention provides for the use of epitope-modifying chemical crosslinking agents to produce surface-binding antigenic constructs for detecting epitope-specific antibodies, said agents abrogating molecular recognition underlying said epitope-specific antibody detection when used in excess.   VALUE PROPOSITION Peptide-based materials are biodegradable and environmentally benign.
