Selecting Microsphere Surface Properties for Diagnostic Applications
- 更新时间2015-02-10 11:36:20
Polymer microspheres are used in diagnostics for lateral fl ow chromatographic strip tests, latex agglutination assays, suspension array tests and nephelometric assays. When changes in microsphere properties are suspected as a root cause of reagent batch failures, it is important to gain a better understanding of the microsphere selection process. There are wide variations in microsphere composition, surface properties and size control that can affect the performance of a diagnostic reagent.
