Read Out Label Optimization for Lateral Flow Assay to Detect CMV

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Creating a cost-effective diagnostic test for congenital cytomegalovirus infections has been the goal, as an alternative to the time-consuming and labor-intensive PCR tests. A few factors must be considered to optimize a vertical or lateral flow device. Golden nanoparticle size, along with antibody selection are a couple examples of factors to be considered. By utilizing Raman spectroscopy and Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy we can obtain a quantitative result of the assays, to optimize.
