New research by a team at York University addresses the current limitations of rapid antigen tests, reducing the potential for false-negative results. Rapid antigen tests, like the COVID-19 home test, use a technology called lateral flow immunoassay (LFIA); but a major limitation of LFIA is its low sensitivity, giving too many false-negative results.
York University will fund ground-breaking research through the Catalyzing Interdisciplinary Research Clusters (CIRC) program, which will advance York’s contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
New research from York University’s Schulich School of Business shows how companies can anticipate – and prepare for – supply chain disruptions.
