Development of assays based on lateral flow has led to low cost and effective large-scale screening of infectious diseases with high specificity. Lateral flow assays consist of membranes, antibodies, and reagents for detection of a color change or fluorescent dye. Amersham ImageQuant™ 800 systems are a new generation of highly sensitive and robust imagers for capture of high-quality images in life science applications from a wide variety of samples, including gels, membrane blots, multiwell plates, and petri dishes.
This app note investigates the use of Conjugated Polymer Nanoparticles (CPNs™) with the Amersham ImageQuant™ 800 imaging system for lateral flow assays and western blotting.
