Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) have gained wide acceptance due to their simplicity of design and cost effectiveness. While delivering a result within minutes at the point of care, their sensitivity as well as quantification capabilities are limited when read out by naked eye.
ams OSRAM developed an optical readout platform that addresses these drawbacks. A spectral sensor is used to quantitatively measure LFT lines with improved sensitivity. The digital and connected nature of the test enables improved quality control and intelligent refinement of data processing.
