What sample types can be used with lateral flow assays?

Lateral flow devices are versatile enough to be developed to detect target analytes in sample types such as:

  • Whole blood
  • Serum
  • Saliva
  • Urine
  • Milk
  • Tissue samples
  • Food
  • Drink
  • Animal feed
  • Plant material
  • Water
  • Fuel

Case studies

 The following case studies provide examples of the development of different lateral flow tests that all work with very different sample types.

Rapid quantification of kappa and lambda free light chains in serum

Seralite®– FLC, a rapid quantitative lateral flow test for haematology oncologyIn this case study, we highlight the development and launch of Seralite®– FLC, a rapid quantitative lateral flow test for haematology oncology. The test quantifies kappa and lambda free light chains in serum and is used as an aid for diagnosing and monitoring patients with suspected Multiple Myeloma, a rare blood cancer.
