In addition to the steadily growing demand for lateral flow assays, there is an ample need for research and development. Around 500 publications are published each year on the topic of lateral flow assay. The number grows from year to year. The focus of research is above all on improving sensitivity and quantification, since in addition to the reproducibility of the results, these are the only disadvantages compared to other analysis methods.
Senova also tackles these tasks, with the current focus on colored nanoparticles. The research into new nanotechnologies and the optimization of the conjugation on receptor molecules allows an increase in sensitivity without having to accept cuts in the manufacturing process or user comfort. The mentioned unique selling points are a basic prerequisite for successfully establishing the next generation of strip tests on the market.
