Lateral flow tests, also known as immunochromatographic strip (ICS) tests, are point of care tests that reduce the time spent waiting for test results from hours to minutes, require less training for operators, and reduce the cost of both device development and care. This report, Lateral Flow Technology and the Future of Point of Care Testing, 2nd Edition, takes an in depth look at the market, technologies, and trends in lateral flow point-of-care testing, looking at both self-testing by patients and at point-of-care testing by healthcare professionals.
Lateral flow (LF) devices and tests have been a popular platform for rapid immunoassays since their introduction in the mid-1980s, and since our last look at the market there has been continued interest and innovations. This report profiles over a hundred companies that currently market lateral flow tests. Many of these companies, plus more than ten additional companies, are developing innovations in lateral flow-based devices. Companies profiled in this report use lateral flow technology to develop and market a wide range of rapid tests for market segments of in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests that can be performed in centralized laboratories.
Every critical aspect of the lateral flow test market is addressed, including the following key topics:
