Within microfluidic technologies, the centrifugal microfluidic "Lab-on-a-Disc" (LoaD) platform offers great potential for use at the PoC and in low-resource settings due to its robustness and the ability to port and miniaturize 'wet bench' laboratory protocols. We present the combination of 'event-triggered dissolvable film valves' with a centrifugo-pneumatic siphon structure to enable control and timing, through changes in disc spin-speed, of the release and incubations of eight samples/reagents/wash buffers. Based on these microfluidic techniques, we integrated and automated a chemiluminescent immunoassay for detection of the CVD risk factor marker C-reactive protein displaying a limit of detection (LOD) of 44.87 ng mL$^{-1}$ and limit of quantitation (LoQ) of 135.87 ng mL$^{-1}$.
