LATERAL FLOW TEST =
IMMEDIATE PATIENT FEEDBACK

Lateral flow tests powered by Sona’s unique gold nanorods can give results within minutes.

Sona’s multi-coloured gold nanorods allow for multiple test lines per unit, with easy-to-read results  from one small sample. 

Advantages of Sona's Nanorod Technology

• Allows one test to detect multiple conditions

• Allows one test to maximize use from a small sample

• Allows one test to detect multiple analyses for specific conditions

• Individual, distinct colours for quantification measurement

• Generates amplified visual signals for simpler interpretation

• Generates increased sensitivity, specificity & time to results

• Sona nanorods have a longer shelf life and resistance to hot temperatures than current technology

• Non toxic - CTAB free

Comprehensive suite of products and services for multiple applications

• Gold nanorods
• Custom conjugation
• Lateral flow test development
• Lateral flow test production

• Point of care diagnostics
• Drug delivery
• Photothermal therapy
• Cell imaging

What industry has to say about our unique gold nanorods

   “I am very optimistic about the future of Sona; the gold nanorods they make are very versatile, with huge application potential in various fields.”

Dr Shine Xu Zhang

Industrial research chair in  applied nanotechnology 

 Cape Breton University

  “Gold nanorods that have been synthesized and stabilized without CTAB are obviously a safer alternative. The fact that such a particle is commercially available today is astonishing. This could be a very important step forward for a number of promising clinical methods.”

Dr Catherine J. Murphy

Gold nanorod pioneer, professor of chemistry, Department of Chemistry

University of Illinois

   “Hydrosense and Sona are the perfect fit; with our innovative and reliable solutions and Sona’s unique gold nanorods, I am certain we can develop something special together.” 

Dr Richard Campbell

Technical director of Hydrosense, a Scotland-based rapid water testing company

Home testing is the future – one day it might replace your doctor

At-home medical testing has come a long way since the first over-the-counter pregnancy tests went on sale more than 40 years ago. Today, home testing kits are available to test for a wide range of conditions, from sexually transmitted infections and stomach ulcers to Alzheimer’s disease and even cancer. Patients with long-term medical complaints can accurately monitor their conditions using home testing kits, such as diabetics checking their blood glucose levels, while people with an interest in their ancestry can buy over the counter genetic testing kits. Even pregnancy test technology, based on the simple lateral flow immunoassay, has advanced
