Herein, we developed a sensitive and quantitative flow assay for simultaneous detection of amantadine (AMD) and chloramphenicol (CAP) in chicken samples based on different CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs). In contrast to other reports, the QDs could be excited by the same excitations that lowered the requirements for the matching instruments. Under the optimal conditions, the strategy permitted sensitive detection of AMD and CAP in a linear range of 0.23 to 1.02 ng/g and 0.02 to 0.66 ng/g. The limits of detection were 0.18 ng/g and 0.016 ng/g, respectively. Moreover, the whole detection process could be completed within 20 min with no additional sophisticated instruments and complicated operations. Spiked samples were analyzed using both QD-based lateral flow immunoassay (QD-LFIA) and commercial ELISA kits with good correlation (R² = 0.96). Moreover, this study laid the foundation and simplified the development of the requisite instrument. Graphical abstract ᅟ
