Title: How innovation enables ams spectral sensing technology to improve COVID-19 rapid testing

Abstract: The ability to do large-scale, fast and highly reliable testing at the point of care (POC) is key to overcome the pandemic situation the world is facing right now. ams is supporting those efforts through developing spectral readout technology for Lateral Flow Immunoassays for antibody and antigen detection. Since its initial development in the 1980s, the technology of Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) has gained wide acceptance because they are compact and easy to use in simple, cost-effective design. Moreover, they provide results within minutes. However, their sensitivity as well as the possibility to provide deeper, quantitative results are limited when analyzed by the naked eye.
ams developed a spectral readout module, that addresses these challenges and drawbacks. Through using spectral sensing, LFT test lines can now be objectively measured by a multi-channel sensor with spectral resolution, adding sensitivity and quantitative capabilities to the system without compromise on size, simplicity and fast, point of care results. In addition to improved measurement performance and user handling, the data can be digitized, and therefore can easily be evaluated using machine learning algorithms to become part of a pandemic monitoring system.
