Lateral flow tests are lateral flow immunochromatographic tests are simple paper based tests that are used to detect the presence or absence of a target analyte in liquid matrix without the use of costly equipment. Generally these tests are used for either medical diagnosing or home use with the known example of a home pregnancy test for home usage.
The two formats forms for lateral flow assay testing can be distinguished as direct and competitive. A direct test format is used for larger analyte detecting in the human body as well as analytes with multiple antigenic sites. In direct testing the presence of the test line indicates a positive result and the control line usually contains species-specific anti-immunoglobulin antibodies, specific for the antibody in the particular conjugate.
The lateral flow is segmented the type of products, applications, different kind of techniques and the end users and regions. The report also contains a detailed analysis of the forecast for the year 20** - 20**.
