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.

The image above is from an experiment using the MSF31 assay kit to quantify frataxin levels from β -lymphocyte cell culture samples derived from control individuals and Friedreich's Ataxia (FA) patients. The signal intensity from the standard curve was interpolated and the relative amount of frataxin in the patients, as compared to the controls, was determined. Based on the above analysis, the patient samples had between 13% and 20% of frataxin levels compared to the control.
