Considerations for Lateral Flow Design
Lateral flow immunoassays are rapid, convenient tests used to detect target analytes, such as macromolecules and proteins, in liquid samples.
The nitrocellulose membrane is the heart of the lateral flow test. Since the interaction of the assay components influences the outcome of the test, the membrane properties must be considered before selection to improve assay consistency and reproducibility.
