ASPERGILLUS GM

LATERAL FLOW ASSAY


It's About

TIME

Over 30 million people are at risk of invasive aspergillosis each year due to use of corticosteroids, chemotherapy or other immunosuppressive agents, and over 300,000 patients develop it annually.

Timely diagnosis and initiation of therapy strongly influence outcome. IMMY’s lateral flow assay can detect it in under an hour.
