Came across this presentation from Anteo discussing their new lateral flow assay kit which has some very impressive data.
Set to be launched at the AACC 2016 conference to be held July 31st - August 4th.
Anteo is attending and has a booth alongside two of their partners Scienion and IMRA.
Also of mention is the Qiagen lateral flow reader which Anteo have also partnered with.
DCN Diagnostics undertook the trials and I have mentioned them here in previous posts.
Will be interesting to see how this product is received and if there are any existing partners already investigating the potential of this product to be used in lateral flow tests (eg. Pregnancy testing)
Previous work with BBI Solutions the global leader in Gold Nanoparticles would be more than a little interested in this work in my opinion.
"A new method of conjugating antibodies to particles was compared to covalent conjugation in a lateral flow assay for human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG). Anteo Technologies will be launching a new Lateral Flow Coupling Kit at AACC 2016 that contains Anteo’s patented Activation Reagent"
"In this hCG study, this coupling kit achieves five times more sensitivity than the covalently conjugated magnetic particle based assay using half the amount of antibody"
