The Magnia® Reader is a sensitive, precise, easy-to-use, low-cost magnetometer for use with immunochromatographic magnetic assays.
Magnetic immunoassays (MIAs) have many advantages, in particular the high sensitivity and precision with which magnetism can be measured and the fact that the full thickness of the lateral flow strip is read (not just the surface). However, most magnetometers require that the test cartridges and reading zones have specific geometries to be readable. This increases the cost of the tests, reduces flexibility in assay development and may lock the user to a specific supplier.
The Magnia® reader is free from these restrictions, enabling assay developers to enjoy the advantages of MIA while being able to continue with their existing research, development and manufacturing processes.
Furthermore, the Magnia® reader is small, light-weight, battery powered and robust making it very suitable for any situation where a rapid, sensitive, precise immunoassay is required.
