Innovative surface chemistry for gold nanoparticles used in Lateral Flow Assays
Lateral Flow Assays (LFAs) have proved their utility to lead massive diagnostic campaigns, the Covid-19 pandemic giving us a striking example.
Yet for some applications, LFAs remain not reliable enough and fail to deliver a definitive diagnosis. This limitation partly comes from a lack of control of the nanoparticle functionalization, which can lead to poor sensitivity and cause non-specific interactions with the membrane.
Kimialys offers off-the-shelf and custom surface chemistries to LFA developers willing to improve the limit of detection and stability of their gold nanoparticle-based assay. Kimialys is also open to transfer its technology onto new materials (magnetite, latex, cellulose, etc.) at request.
