Extreme Compatibility


RDS-2500 Lateral Flow Reader

Is compatibility important? We think so.

That's why we designed our RDS-2500 instrument with that in mind.

It can analyze a wide variety of cassette and test strip formats, so you can use a single reader for all your testing needs.

Desktop Lateral Flow Reader Reference Platform for High Volume Lateral Flow Applications

What Is the Detekt Desktop Lateral Flow Reader Reference Platform?

Detekt's Desktop Lateral Flow Reader Reference Platform is a business-to-business solution ideal for high volume lateral flow immunoassay applications in non-food and beverage testing arenas. The reference platform is a customizable desktop or benchtop lateral flow reader solution with integrated QR scanner, Wi-Fi, customizable user interface, and optics module that provides sensitive, quantitative test results.

What Industries Can I Use The Desktop Lateral Flow Reader Reference Platform In?

The platform can be utilized in a variety of industries, including environmental monitoring, research and development, clinical research, forensics, biothreat, drugs of abuse, veterinary health, and more.  

Will My Assay Format Be Compatible?

Depending on your assay format and its dimensions, the industrial design for the reference platform can be customized to accomodate your immunoassays and meet your branding goals. The reader platform offers our largest imaging region yet, ensuring a high degree of compatibility with even the largest cassette formats. Acceptable assay formats include non-fluorescent lateral flow test strips. Detekt always asks interested parties to send a sample of their immunoassay format for evaluation at the start of a project. At Detekt, our team collaborates closely with our partners to understand their market needs and product specifications prior to designing concepts that bring our partners' visions to life.

What Are the Key Benefits of the System for Assay Developers?

Detekt's partners are provided with a highly customizable platform that can be utilized each step of the way from assay development or R&D to quality control and ultimately point-of-care or in-the-field testing. For assay developers, the reader enables high-throughput testing that yields robust data to expedite the process from designing an assay to offering it for commercial or research use. Assay developers can provide end users with an array of lateral flow tests, all compatible with a single reader that provides a fully quantitative test result. Semi-quantitative or qualitative outputs can be accomodated also. Detekt offers custom injection molded housing form factors and color-matching to provide a fully-branded lateral flow reader solution.

The reader is ideal for high volume applications with high-throughput or large cassette formats. 


Detekt Raptor RenderDetekt's lateral flow reader reference platform was customized for a company repeatedly named to Forbes Magazine's list of the Best Small Companies in America. This partner holds an exclusive license for the Detekt desktop lateral flow reader platform in food and beverage testing.

Testing Bovine Estrus Cycle Assay in Kenya

Non-profit group Diagnostics for All has developed a bovine estrus cycle assay for point of care testing in developing nations. Allowing farmers to quickly and accurately determine the ideal point in a cow’s cycle for artificial insemination, the new diagnostic test maximizes milk production and reduces the waiting time between pregnancies. Ultimately, farmers in rural areas can increase their agricultural productivity. 

In their recent trip to Eldoret, Kenya, Diagnostics for All used Detekt’s RDS-1500 PRO lateral flow system to objectively quantify test results in the field, reducing errors.

Now available! Chameleon Mini Evaluation Kit

The Chameleon Mini Development Kit is a platform for inventors, assay developers, and manufacturers with existing rapid test kits composed of color changing test strip technology. Program enrollment is ideal for groups who intend to:

  • Develop and test colorimetric dry chemistry assays
  • Quantify their test strip signal for higher assay accuracy
  • Develop new test strip technologies for emerging applications
  • Develop an iOS app based upon the Chameleon Mini SDK

Key Benefits
The development kit can quickly be used to transform a test or assay from a subjective read to an
objective read. This means no more guessing what color the pad or strip is. 

The app provides a robust archive of test results that can be used for data analysis and tracking trends. 

The ultimate goal is to establish that the system is compatible with your test strip and to give you a complete software and hardware package to begin exploring potential applications for your assay.
