Lateral flow conjugate pads

Lateral flow conjugate pads

Lateral flow conjugate pads
Conjugate pads designed for Lateral Flow Immuno Assay applications representing a rapid, cost-effective, easy-to-use solution for achieving reliable and consistent results. They can be chemically pre-treated and customized in terms of cutting and packaging to better meet your requirements.

Our glass and polyester conjugate pads are suitable for a wide range of diagnostics applications such as infectious disease screening, pregnancy tests, drug abuse monitoring, animal screening and food and beverage testing.

They provide improved conjugate line dispensing and performance consistency, reducing time for test completion and costs of reagents.  

  • Rapid and consistent absorption
  • Low protein binding
  • High level release of the conjugate particles onto the membrane
  • Wide range and pretreatment available

Ahlstrom-Munksjö glass and polyester conjugate pads provide improved conjugate line dispense and performance consistency, reducing time for test completion and costs of reagents.

They are suitable for a wide range of diagnostics applications including:

  • Infectious disease screening
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Drug abuse monitoring
  • Veterinary diagnostics
  • Food and beverage testing
  • Environmental safety

The newly designed microfiber glass conjugate pads, 8914 and 8917, offer better uniformity intended to improve the coefficient of variability (CV). These two grades are naturally hydrophilic and differ in the amount of blocking agent contained with the conjugate pad. 8914 has a lower PVOH content than 8917, allowing them to interact differently with pretreatment formulations.

Our pretreatment capabilities

Additionally, Ahlstrom-Munksjö offers ReliaFlow™, a conjugate release pad pretreated with a standard chemistry, applied by an automated continuous process providing a cost-effective and uniform application of the chemistry solution for consistent performance.

  • Dry gold to conjugate pad without compromising quality
  • Produce rapid re-wetting of the pad during use of test
  • Increase level of gold release to improve sensitivity on average 25+% increase in line visibility
  • Improve consistency of gold release with uniform of surface due to continuous automated application of solution
  • Maintain reproducible performance over time
