A Highly Sensitive LFA Reader Using Photothermal Laser Speckle Imaging

Lateral-flow immunoassay (LFA), also known as rapid kits, is one of the promising technologies that have seen great commercial success and made a marked impact on health clinics. LFA utilizes an inexpensive paper-based device to perform rapid and robust screening of biomarkers in complex biological fluids such as saliva and urine.
