One-minute Instant-view™ & Instant-view-PLUS™ Products with Driven Flow Technology™

Driven Flow™ Technology represents a breakthrough in point-of- care (POC), rapid diagnostic testing. By greatly enhancing the speed, accuracy, and specificity of the  lateral flow assays, ALFA products featuring Driven Flow™ offer a route to true confirmatory and quantitative POC testing for pathogens, drugs and their metabolites, hormones, and other antigens in a wide array of testing environments. With reliable results in as little as one minute,  ALFA's Instant-view-PLUS™  and One-minute Insant-view™ products deliver  “Accuracy at the Speed of ALFA”.
The patented Driven Flow™ Technology utilizes a tightly restricted sample flow-path and the additional flow acceleration, termed Driven Flow™, provided by mechanically squeezing the liquid sample matrix through the device. Much like the pump used in High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), this squeezing action produces the powerful driving force to push the flow past the reaction area evenly, at high speed while generating maximum, thorough reaction of the binding complexes. This flow also provides a strong self-washing function that minimizes non-specific binding in the reaction area.
