Lateral Flow Assay Development

Cytodiagnostics through its affiliate Cytogroup, offers flexible solutions for development and manufacturing of lateral flow assays based on our noble-metal nanoparticles (standard gold nanoparticles and our unique gold nanourchins). 


By leveraging years of experience in nanoparticle manufacturing and assay development we can reduce the time from project inception to a finished product.
Whether it is a smaller project or full-scale assay development project with the goal of launching a commercial product, Cytodiagnostics and Cytogroup are here to help. 




Common service and project types:
  • Antibody conjugation and screening
  • Oligo and Aptamer conjugation, discovery and screening
  • New assay development
  • Transfer and optimization of existing proof-of-concept assay into a flow based rapid test setting.
  • Deposition of your gold conjugate on conjugate pads
