|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.
Intial research will be conducted through a proof of concept experiment based approach. Once it is therotically possible, steps will be taken to explore designing a prototype device.
