lateral flow tests
We believe that the rise of lateral flow tests in testing for a range of pathagons is one of the greatest public health solutions in a generation.
Covid brought much change to our lives. One of the few positive developments was the rise of inhome independant testing against this high infectious viral disease of Covid 19. It would be hard to find anyone who has not used a lateral flow test through the pandemic.
This informal and rapic training of testing at home means we have schooled generations of people to use testing, and especially lateral flow tests as a tool to go about every day life in a safe manner.
It is not a too much to consider that the lateral flow test platform can be used across the pathogens. Well known uses of lateral flow tests are the pregnancy tests along with the viral covid tests. While bacterial infection tests have been developed along with more viral pathogens, including the new monkey pox.
This simple, light weight, low cost and easily deployed piece of technology is a platform for a heathlier and happier population. Reducing the annual flu waves and improving response times to outbreaks.
This website aims to promote and discuss how lateral flow tests are being used across the their use cases.
Along with following the orginal and still ongoing Covid 19 pandemic and the innovation to reduce the spread.
