Lateral flow assays (LFAs) have been on the market as a tool for performing fast diagnostic tests for several decades. Clinical professionals use LFAs routinely, and the public have gained familiarity outside the healthcare environment through over-the-counter devices, such as pregnancy tests. In this webinar we will explore the future of LFAs, discussing the various applications where these immunodiagnostic tests are starting to make an impact and how LFAs can help progress molecular diagnostics in a variety of fields.
Key learning objectives:
- The history of lateral flow assay tests, in brief
- The new applications that are enabling molecular diagnostics to make a big impact
- Evolution of LFAs, from an immunodiagnostic test to a full technological breakthrough
- How implementing best practice thinking can be applied to molecular diagnostics now
