P19084: Lateral Flow Assays Alternative
/public/

Home

Project Summary Project Information

Lateral flow assays (LFA’s) are used to diagnose patients using biomarkers of interest. Current LFA’s are expensive and aren’t sufficiently sensitive enough to give results for diagnosis in a timely manner. In under-resourced settings (rural locations, developing world) this can cause an ill patient to leave clinic before receiving a diagnosis, thus preventing treatment and may proliferate the disease.

The goal is to create a low-cost rapid diagnostic prototype. The device should be low cost and more efficient than currently used products. The rapid diagnostic device should also be marketable to under-resourced clinics.
