Immunochromatographic Reader

While visual measurements and scanning on a flatbed scanner can both be used to evaluate our dipsticks, the most effective quantitative results are derived when using an immunochromatographic reader that has been specifically designed to read conjugated gold lateral flow devices.

The reader that we recommend is the Hamamatsu ICA-1000, which is a simple PC-based system for measuring and analyzing our dipstick products. We have an agreement in place with Hamamatsu that allows us to offer this reader directly to our customers.

Dipstick Quantity Results

The above results show the clear visual difference between individuals with normal levels of the COX enzyme complex compared to patients with defects in COX assembly (SURF1 patients). The dipstick results are both quantitative and highly reproducible (intra-assay error less than 10%). The developed dipsticks can be analyzed with a simple flat-be scanner and common imaging software or, for sensitive and reproducible results, a dipstick reader can be utilized (our suggested reader: Hamamatsu ICA-1000).
