Nanoparticle-based photoacoustic analysis for highly sensitive lateral flow assays

Author affiliations

Abstract

This paper demonstrates a photoacoustics-based lateral flow test that takes advantage of the strong interaction of light and gold nanoparticles to quantitatively detect a disease biomarker. For a commercially available lateral flow test strip, the photoacoustic analysis improved the detection limit by two orders of magnitude compared to colorimetric measurements.
