Nucleic acid lateral flow immunoassays

A rapid nucleic acid detection solution

Abingdon Health’s PCRD nucleic acid lateral flow immunoassays (NALFIA) are for use alongside isothermal amplification techniques. Results are available in 10 minutes making them the perfect solution for rapid detection of nucleic acids for point of care testing in infectious disease applications, such as COVID-19.

State-of-the-art automation equipment allows for the manufacture of millions of test strips per month.

  • Ideal for the quick deployment of testing in response to a disease outbreak
  • Portable and compact, suitable for point of care testing
  • Easily incorporated into routine protocols with minimal training
  • Cost-effective solution
  • Available in housed cassettes (PCRD) or dipstick format (PCRD FLEX)

Straightforward nucleic acid testing in any location

What is PCRD?

PCRD NALFIA assays detect specific labelled amplicons following an amplification sequence. The tests allow the visualisation of amplified products and selected binding partners due to an aggregation of coloured particles at the test capture lines.

PCRD provides high sensitivity with simple qualitative results, and no reliance on large equipment, provides an easy nucleic acid detection solution, saving costs and time on training and deployment.
