Plasma Separation Media – How to select the best material
About the webinar
In Lateral Flow Immuno Assay (LFIA), most of gold-standard tests for disease detection are based on whole blood samples. However, the presence of cells and platelets can interfere with the elution of the sample through the test strip, leading to false negative or false positive results.
During this webinar we will discuss how the use of appropriate sample preparation techniques and sample pads selection can improve the performance of LFIA tests using whole blood samples, enabling remote and rapid diagnosis of diseases and other applications.
