Lateral flow test development: a hands-on experience

EMD Millipore, the life science division of Merck KGaA of Darmstadt, Germany, announced an upcoming technical seminar that will describe how to develop and manufacture a lateral flow test, incorporating raw materials, R&D considerations and machinery. The seminar will take place May 14-15 in the Boston Marriot Copley Place, in Boston, Massachusetts.

The seminar is geared for professionals involved in the development and manufacture of lateral flow test kits, including scientists, engineers and technicians working in R&D and product development. Presentations will explore a wide range of topics, including membrane technology, contract manufacturing and test validation, and antibodies and blockers. The seminar also includes two hands-on interactive lab lessons, on fabricating test strips and evaluating the effects of different configurations on test strip function, as well as a troubleshooting session with case studies. The seminar will be led by experts from EMD Millipore, BBInternational and Kinematic Automation.
