Unfortunately, there is no set of “one size fits all” materials that will work for every assay. For this reason, it is necessary to evaluate several different combinations of conjugate pads, nitrocellulose and sample pads during the early stages of development. This process can be cumbersome because of the extensive catalog of options available on the market, large minimum order requirements and long lead times from manufacturers. Thus, the DCNovations Lateral Flow Materials Kits are essential for the beginning stage of any lateral flow development program.
Our kits come in two sizes.
Mini Materials Kit: This streamlined, budget-friendly kit is ideal for the first time lateral flow developer who needs to learn the basics before launching a large-scale materials evaluation. The Mini Materials Kit includes 4 different membranes, 2 different conjugate/sample pads, and 1 wick/sample pad.
Materials Kit: Our full-sized materials kit is developed for research groups or startups with lateral flow development projects already underway. This kit contains 7 different membranes, 3 conjugate pads, 4 sample pads, and 3 wick pads as well as cassettes and a sample of DCNovations Colloidal Gold.
