We designed the reader with a light-tight door that is flipped down to allow for the cartridge to be inserted. During the test, a magnet ensures the door is closed.
We designed the injection-moulded case parts to be manufactured in relatively small batches by a UK toolmaker.
The electro-mechanical assembly was designed to accept the lateral flow assay cartridge and assembles within the injection moulded case moulding.
The rapid lateral-flow reader was developed to test for the quantitative measurement of kappa (K) and lambda (λ) immunoglobulin free light chains (FLCs) in serum.
