DCN uses SymbolicsTM to create arrays of spots in the lateral flow field using high precision dispensers.
Why there have been no commercial successes in applying cell phone readers to POC, regulated, LFI based diagnostics? Why is there no industry standard for hardware or software specifications? Isn’t it time for that?
Dr. Brendan O’Farrell has written a new book chapter on the most recent advances in lateral flow technology and their application in point of care applications.
The cassette is an essential part of the product. It’s the key to functionality, usability, user satisfaction, and branding and value proposition. This component should not be an afterthought.
There are few places one can learn how to develop LFI’s outside of a few industrial sources like DCN. With this technology there is no substitute for experience when it comes to developing a product that can be manufactured and produced to meet specifications in high volume.
Multiplexing is a growing area of application development. It brings some very specific thought processes along with it when it comes to designing, developing and commercializing products.
