So you’re in the midst of later flow test development? Then you have surely visited some questions such as “how much is it going to cost me?”. Often times the beginning phases of the process that leads up to a lateral flow test are hindered severely by the lack of necessary materials. These materials aren’t a problem in terms of availability, but more of how you get them.
Most providers will offer you a minimum purchase type of deal, which revolves around having to meet a specific minimum amount of product before your order can be recorded. The list of things you need when you start developing lateral flow tests is quite extensive and it is most likely that you wish things would be different.
The good thing is that things really can be different. You also have a second option that you probably didn’t know about, and neither did your supplier. The saving grace comes in the form of a material starter kit. The beauty of material starter kits is that you don’t have to settle. You can get everything you require in quantities that please both you and your wallet and inventory space. With a wide array of material available, these kits include everything you will need for your lateral flow assay development and optimization. Let’s go over some of the things that are included in the material starter kits which are specially built around lateral flow assays.
- Sample and conjugate pads
- Pouches and Cassettes
You will no longer be required to choose between having all the materials you need and having to place orders with parameters that don’t fit your purposes. Try out the material starter kit for yourself to get an idea of how much it impacts your work flow.
