Lateral flow assays have provided a very useful tool for three decades. Use of the technology is widespread and has proven an inexpensive way to screen, qualitatively and semi-quantitatively, in point-of-care environments. Lateral flow tests are used for medical diagnostics and detect the presence or absence of a target analyte in a sample matrix without the need for additional specialized and expensive medical equipment. The tests are utilized either for at-home-testing, point-of-care testing, or in clinical laboratories, depending on the tests regulatory clearances.
Throughout over 20-year history, ALFA has fine-tuned our manufacturing capabilities to a level that ensures the highest quality of lateral flow test output. All products are produced in the USA. ALFA's Instant-view® lateral flow tests stand for quality our customers have come to rely on and trust.
