Point-of-care (POC) and point-of-use assays are critical for identifying and measuring the quantity of analytes in a variety of environments that lack access to laboratory infrastructure. In quantitative versions of these assays, both the duration of the assay and the output signal must be measured. Measurements of time most often are performed using a timer that is external to the platform of the assay. Such measurements are relatively simple and inexpensive, and in some cases, can be… CONTINUE READING
