Next week Team Sona will be travelling to San Diego, California to attend the Advanced Lateral Flow Course(ALFC) 2018.
Aimed at developers and manufacturers of rapid diagnostic tests and their associated products, ALFC 2018 will guide delegates through the steps of producing and commercialising a point of care diagnostic device.
It will also address various questions about lateral flow diagnostics, such as what these tests are really capable of and what the future holds for this technology.
The event will also include the presentation of the first Rapid Testing Innovation Award. This competitive prize includes a cash award of $10,000 and will recognize the best innovation to the field of rapid point-of-care assays or the most novel application for rapid assays during the past year.
We look forward to learning more about the five finalists and learning who has won this prestigious prize.
