About the webinar

Rapid diagnostic tests play a critical role in improving delivery and outcomes for various applications including healthcare, food safety, agricultural, environmental, and veterinary medical, particularly in settings with limited resources or where portability is required. They provide quick results, often within minutes to a few hours, which is crucial for timely diagnosis and treatment, they can be performed at the point of care, such as in clinics, doctor's offices, in the field, and even at home, without the need for specialized laboratory equipment or highly trained personnel. Additionally, they are generally less expensive than traditional laboratory tests, reducing the overall cost of the procedure.

Numerous factors must be considered when designing a lateral flow assay to ensure performance and manufacturability.

During this webinar, Ahlstrom and Ethos Biosciences will share guidance on selecting the most appropriate materials to develop lateral flow assays to meet your requirements and lead to a smooth transition in manufacturing.
