Production of a lateral flow test requires the NC membrane and other materials to be attached to a plastic backing. mdi laminates or cards are such ready-to-use sub-assemblies of membrane, adhesive, and plastic. These are convenient to handle for application of reagents, and later cutting into dipsticks to make the complete test.
- Allow immediate development and scale up for production
- Can be custom designed to fit existing cassette or dipstick design
- All components are proven and will not interfere with the immunoassays
To order a membrane laminate, please specify the membrane, laminate type, membrane pore size, and the dimensions A1, A2, W, X, and Y.

* Type of NC membrane. e.g. CNPC-SS12 etc
mdi recommends storage of membrane laminates at 15 °C to 20 °C for longer shelf life. The membrane is inflammable when subjected to direct heat. The laminates should be kept away from heat radiators and direct sunlight and should not be allowed to lie in the open for long periods.
