Automated Processes

Because the manufacture of lateral-flow assays is done in such significant volumes, many of the processes can and should be done automatically. With automaton comes higher quality, higher yields, lower scrap rates, and lower overall product costs. And, since the automated processes reduce the number of assembly personnel required, these processes generally require less manufacturing space.

There are a number of processes in the manufacture of lateral-flow assays for which automated processing equipment is available. These include dispensing of chemical reagents, lamination of the components that create the strips, the cutting of these laminated materials into strips, and the assembly and packaging of the devices.
