Lateral Flow Assays

Innovative surface chemistry for gold nanoparticles in Lateral Flow Assays

Innovative surface chemistry for gold nanoparticles used in Lateral Flow Assays

Lateral Flow Assays (LFAs) have proved their utility to lead massive diagnostic campaigns, the Covid-19 pandemic giving us a striking example.

Yet for some applications, LFAs remain not reliable enough and fail to deliver a definitive diagnosis. This limitation partly comes from a lack of control of the nanoparticle functionalization, which can lead to poor sensitivity and cause non-specific interactions with the membrane.

Kimialys offers off-the-shelf and custom surface chemistries to LFA developers willing to improve the limit of detection and stability of their gold nanoparticle-based assay. Kimialys is also open to transfer its technology onto new materials (magnetite, latex, cellulose, etc.) at request.
