Sensors, Vol. 18, Pages 4084: An Optimized Colorimetric Readout Method for Lateral Flow Immunoassays (Sensors)

Despite its broad penetration of various markets, the quantitative lateral flow immunoassay (LFIA) suffers from sensitivity issues in some cases. To solve this problem, an optimized colorimetric readout method for LFIA quantification is proposed in this study. An assay reader device utilizing a color camera and an analysis method using a Bayer filtered image were developed. Spectrometric measurements of the assay test line were performed to determine the color channel that contains the test line information and effectively minimizes noise. The change in the intensity ratio with increasing concentration of the target substance in the sample was largest in the green channel. The linear range of the output curve ranged from 0 to 10 ng/mL, and the detection limit was 2 ng/mL. The suggested instrumentation and analysis methods are expected to effectively resolve the low-sensitivity problems of the former LFIA systems and to offer other prospective functionalities for LFIA quantification.
