This talk shows our effort to develop the paper-based lateral flow strips as point-of-care devices. The detection platforms based on different signal transduction mechanisms have been developed. The detection platforms have then been integrated into the paper-based membrane to form the lateral flow strips.  The paper-based lateral flow strips are inexpensive, require only a hundred of micro-liter sample and minimize the sample pre-treatment in the lab setting.
