How does a lateral flow immunoassay work?

If you have ever asked the question, how does a lateral flow immunoassay work? this animation will answer your question. This animation takes a look inside a lateral flow immunoassay (LFIA)  and looks at the various components used to see how they interact with one another to produce rapid tests results. We have chosen to explain how a multiplex sandwich immunoassay format works using a generic target sample. However, there are different immunoassay formats available.

If you would like to learn more about LFIAs please read our what is a lateral flow test page or read our Science Behind Lateral Flow articles.
