Lateral Flow Testing (LFT)

We have developed an optical readout for improved Lateral Flow Testing (LFT). The widespread use of the LFT is mainly attributed to its simplicity of design and relevant accuracy, which allows these tests to be produced in a cost-effective way at high volumes. LFTs are compact, portable and easy to use. The current drawbacks to LFT include limitation in sensitivity, difficulty of signal quantification, and multi-analyte detection rather than single use case. To address this, we have developed a small and cost-effective optical module to improve the performance of LFTs.

The technology increases optical sensitivity, allowing multi-analyte detection, and accommodating different optical measurement methodologies such as reflection and fluorescence measurements. The ams optical module, containing a spectral sensor, can be integrated into the LFT.

The specialized optical module is based on a spectral sensing technology. To use this spectral sensing chip AS7341L, a license and support from ams is necessary. For pricing and support, please contact us.
