Lateral Flow Assays: Discover the Importance of the Nitrocellulose Membrane
The nitrocellulose membrane is the heart of a lateral flow assay. It is where the target and control molecules are captured and where the test results are read.
Join our webinar, hosted by Klaus Hochleitner, to take a deep dive into nitrocellulose membranes including the raw material, structure manufacturing process and capillary flow time and how these affect your lateral flow assays.
Klaus will also cover the effect of surfactants on protein binding and membrane properties and how to deal with unspecific binding of proteins to nitrocellulose membranes.
Attend this webinar to:
- Understand the key parameters of nitrocellulose membranes and how they affect lateral flow tests
- Review types of surfactant and their effect on protein binding and membrane properties
- Highlight how to overcome the challenges with unspecific binding of proteins to nitrocellulose membranes
- Understand the factors influencing specific binding of proteins and other molecules
