Pall's BioSupport Division (US) has introduced Accuwik lateral flow transfer medium as a replacement for nitrocellulose in one-step lateral flow diagnostic tests. The microporous, microfibre membrane contains no surfactants, and is intrinsically hydrophilic, requiring no pre-wetting, the company says. Wicking rate is controllable at migration speeds up to five times faster than nitrocellulose, and the medium exhibits very low level protein adsorption. Three grades, each providing two flow rates depending on orientation, are available.
