At AfimaCheck Inc, we believe that our solutions will soon become one of the biggest segments in the drug detection industry. We’ve only just started, but we already know that every product we build requires hard-earned skills, dedication and a daring attitude. Continue reading and learn all there is to know about the smart tech behind our successful Biotechnology Startup.
Oral fluid LFA technologies offer simple, low-cost, portable, and rapid detection of THC. However, the detection threshold of THC in commercially available LFAs is normally limited to greater than 25 ng/ml, which is insufficient for proper enforcement of workplace and roadside per se regulations. We have recently developed and patented a low-cost thermo-photonic technology which utilizes the commercially available low-cost LFAs but offers detection and quantification of THC down to 2 ng/ml with 96% accuracy. While LFA reader technologies interrogate intensity of reflected light from LFAs, our reader technology examines photothermal responses of gold nanoparticles (GNPs) in LFAs through Thermography.
