  • Lateral Flow Immunoassay Article Analysis

    Trend #1: Lateral Flow Immunoassay (LFI) Shan, S., Lai, W., Xiong, Y., Wei, H., and Xu, H. (2015) Novel Strategies To Enhance Lateral Flow Immunoassay Sensitivity for Detecting Foodborne Pathogens. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. 63, 745−753. DOI: 10.1021/jf5046415. This article talks about the simplicity, stability and sensitivity of conventional lateral flow immunoassay (LFI) device for the use of detecting foodborne pathogens. Foodborne pathogen has prevailed to cause disease and even death in individuals that has been exposed to bacteria thru food consumption. Therefore, the researchers in this paper examine, in great detail, how the conventional lateral flow immunoassay can be enhanced for stringent sensitivity as well as…

    sensitivities, specificities as well as the predictive values and the optimal cut-off values can be found in Table 3. Discussion As expected, the comparison of a LC-MS/MS determination of steroid hormones with immunoassays shows an over-determination by immunological methods, as already described by other authors [7,13,14]. All in all, a pronounced degree of analytical variability between the different tests can be detected. The best agreement was found between the LC-MS/MS and the LIAISON…
