Lateral Flow Immunochromatographic Assay 

Part of our growth strategy is to innovative products and solutions and meet our customers’ increasingly stringent quality requirements. We continuously invest in optimizing production and product quality as well as in our product portfolio, working closely with our customers and partners from industry, universities, and other institutions.

Although rapid assay methods have had a major impact on various diagnostic tests in the last two decades, it can be claimed to have the number of manufacturers producing quality products is quite low.

One that can, and is in widespread use, as a result, is the lateral flow immunoassay test, also known as the immunochromatography assay, or strip test. Like many of the best ideas, lateral flow immunoassays take clever and sophisticated technology and turn it into something so simple to operate that almost anyone can use it.

The lateral flow assay (LFA) is for the detection and quantification of analytes in complex mixtures. In LFA, the sample is added on a test pad and then the results will show up in 5 to 20 minutes. Since the LFA development is cost-effective and its production is easy, LFAs are increasingly applied in multiple fields where rapid tests are required. For example, LFAs are frequently used in hospitals, physician's offices, and clinical laboratories to qualitatively or quantitatively detect specific antigens, antibodies, and gene amplification products. In addition, various biological samples (such as urine, saliva, sweat, serum, plasma, whole blood, and other fluids) can be tested using LFAs. As a result, industries including veterinary medicine, quality control, product safety in food production, and environmental health and safety can apply LFA-based tests to screen animal diseases, pathogens, chemicals, toxins, and water pollutants, among others.
