The general robustness is a characteristic feature of lateral flow devices (LFD’s). Even during longer transports and extreme weather conditions LFD’s remain stable. Temperature is an important factor when it comes to robustness. Therefore our HybriDetect test strips are regularly tested at higher temperatures.
Especially in the development of NALFIA’s (Nucleic Acid Lateral Flow Immunoassays), the temperature can influence the test result significantly. Higher temperatures can also be understood as tool in the assay procedure to achieve certain results. The hybridization of amplificates is classified as particularly interesting. The use of a defined temperature is a crucial parameter to maintain specific hybridizing conditions.
